PARIS (Reuters) - A French financial prosecutor requested Swiss bank UBS <UBSG.S> go on trial for covering up clients' tax fraud as well as illegal prospecting, a judicial source told Reuters.


The source said the prosecutor had also requested UBS France, the bank's French arm, go on trial for complicity.


A spokeswoman for UBS had no immediate comment.


French investigating magistrates now have a month to decide whether or not UBS should face judges.


UBS was placed under formal examination in 2014. At the time, investigating judges ordered the company to pay a 1.1 billion euro ($1.21 billion) bail.
