UBS pays $1.5 bln to settle Libor rigging in Japan

UBS pays $1.5 bln to settle Libor rigging in Japan 19 Dec 2012 UBS said it will pay 1.4 billion Swiss francs ($1.53 billion) and admit wrongdoing at its Japanese arm to settle a wide-ranging, multi-regulator probe into how the Swiss bank's traders manipulated yen Libor and euroyen contracts. The Swiss bank's fine is second-largest ever levied against a bank, after Britain's HSBC last week agreed to pay $1.92 billion to settle a probe in the United States into laundering money for drug cartels.
