``Neither of the banks cited by the Times is a U.S. bank. The charges focus on Switzerland's Credit Suisse for its practices in offering tax shelters to Americans, and on France's largest bank, BNP Paribas, over doing business with nations like Sudan and Iran that the U.S. has blacklisted, according to the Times... According to the Times account, any guilty pleas would apparently come from the banks themselves or their subsidiaries -- there was no mention that any individual banker might be charged.''
