11 Feb 2019

The Tribunal de Grande Instance de Paris in France has launched an official investigation into Danske Bank regarding suspicion of money laundering linked to its non-resident customers portfolio.

The probe covers transactions amounting to around €21.6 million. anske has been ordered to post bail of €10.8 million.

The transactions occurred between 2007 and 2014 and are central to a September 2018 report into money laundering and tax evasion involving the bank.

Last year, the bank was hit with allegations it had been used to launder around €200 billion, in a scandal involving its non-resident customers portfolio.

Danske said it was first placed under formal investigation in France on 11 October 2017.

Following the money laundering scandal, a number of regulators in other countries have launched probes into the bank.
