Very sensitive case , I wonder what will happen here ??
Report: 3 Swiss to avoid trial in politically sensitive nuclear smuggling case - The Washington Post
The case is politically sensitive for Switzerland and the United States because of alleged national security implications, the men’s alleged CIA ties, and repeated instances of evidence being destroyed. It involves charges of violating Swiss nonproliferation laws.
Urs Tinner, his brother Marco and their father Friedrich have been under investigation by Swiss authorities for almost a decade for supplying equipment and technical know-how to an international smuggling ring led by Pakistani scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan.
As the creator of Pakistan’s atomic bomb, Khan sold the centrifuges for secret nuclear weapons programs in countries that included Libya and Iran before his operation was disrupted in 2003.
Urs Tinner, who like his brother and father has been released on bail pending charges, claimed in an 2009 interview with Swiss TV station SF1 that he had worked with U.S. intelligence. He said he had tipped off the CIA about a delivery of centrifuge parts meant for Libya’s nuclear weapons program.
The CIA has declined to comment on the case.

In an unexpected turn of events Swiss authorities announced a decision to enter into a plea bargain with the notorious Tinner family members, who have been in jail over nuclear smuggling charges in the illicit network of disgraced Pakistani scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan.
The Tinners, Friedrich and his two sons Urs and Marco, were also accused of being informants for the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency and one of the father-sons team was actually said to have been a CIA contractor.
The Office of the Attorney General of Switzerland this week noted that it had formally filed charges against the Tinnners under the War Material Act, an indictment based on their alleged aiding of “the illegal nuclear weapons programme of an unknown state through various activities.”
