Nine Danske Bank money managers have been charged by Danish authorities with violations of the Anti-Money Laundering Act. The bank's former CEO, Thomas Borgen, was also charged. The estimated amount of criminal proceeds that passed through the bank is €200m.
An independent investigation, conducted by a prominent law firm, concluded:
(1) The banks failed to perform even the basic anti-money laundering checks.
(2) There was no automatic screening of incoming transactions.
(3) There were no checks of account owners to confirm that they were not subject to sanctions.
