Estonian prosecutor seizes 2 million euros from former Danske Bank employee
12 Aug 2019

Estonian prosecutors said on Friday that last month they had ordered a local court to seize around 2 million euros ($2.24 million) from a bank account belonging to a former Danske Bank employee as part of an investigation into alleged money laundering.

The money was sitting in a Latvian bank account belonging to one of 10 former employees at the local branch of Danske Bank arrested by Estonian police last December, Estonian newspaper Eesti Ekspress reported.

A spokeswoman for the Estonian general prosecutor confirmed the news to Reuters on Friday.

Authorities in Denmark, Estonia, Britain and the United States are investigating payments totalling 200 billion euros ($224 billion) made through the tiny Estonian branch of Denmark’s largest bank between 2007 and 2015.
