It’s been rough times for Danske Bank in recent months. The money laundering scandal at its Estonian office is a problem that simply won’t go away.
From the Azeri regime to a Russian arms dealer, it has become glaringly clear that a number of shady players have taken advantage of the lax protocols that have existed at Danske Bank’s Estonian office. As if that wasn’t enough, now the French are getting involved.
A French court, Tribunal de Grande Instance de Paris, has charged the bank in connection with money laundering via the bank’s Estonian operations from 2008-2011.
