Prosecutors evaluating Dutch ties to alleged Russian money laundering
07 Mar 2019

Prosecutors in the Netherlands said on Wednesday they are evaluating signs of Dutch involvement in a money laundering network which is alleged by a report this week to have channelled billions of euros from Russia.

Shares in Dutch banks ING and ABN Amro fell after a report by a collective of European news outlets called the Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP). Its report was based on what it said were leaked documents detailing transactions worth more than $470 billion sent in 1.3 million transfers from 233,000 companies.

“We have received signs of Dutch involvement. This has our attention and we are now evaluating all information,” spokeswoman Marieke van der Molen said, adding that the prosecutors would coordinate their findings with their counterparts in other countries.
