Criminal proceedings against a money laundering reporting officer were withdrawn in the Royal Court after a 16-month long investigation.
Michael Still, who works for Investec Bank, had denied a charge of money laundering and an alternative of failing to make a required disclosure as soon as possible while the nominated officer for disclosure at Investec. The amount involved was £223,728.51.
The case had been due for a trial starting today.
Mr Still said after this morning’s proceedings that the 16-month investigation and build-up to the trial had naturally led to a huge amount of psychological and emotional strain for him, his family, and colleagues, the likes of which they never experienced before.
