BERNE May 20 (Reuters) - The Swiss National Bank will continue to do business with Credit Suisse as it has done in the past despite the bank's guilty plea to helping wealthly Americans dodge taxes, the central bank's chairman said on Tuesday.

"We will continue our business relationship with Credit Suisse as was the case in the past," Thomas Jordan said at an event in Bern.

Jordan added: "We expect that the U.S. Justice Department treats all banks equally and fairly and that Swiss banks are no exceptions." (Reporting by Joshua Franklin and Paul Arnold)
