Estonian police said they held three employees of local bank Tallinna Aripank for questioning this week for 48 hours as part of an investigation into suspected money laundering and bribery.
Estonia’s bank system has been in the spotlight after Denmark’s largest lender, Danske Bank, said last year more than 200 billion euros ($224 billion) of suspicious payments had gone through its Estonian branch.
Police said the three Aripank employees were taken on June 11 then released after two days, in an investigation that began in the summer of 2018.
They said the case was not linked to the Danske Bank probe.
