Estonian Danske money laundering probe grows to 10+ cases, $2 bln

TALLINN () – Estonian prosecutors said on Thursday they had expanded an investigation of money laundering through Danske Bank’s (DANSKE.CO) Estonian unit to cover transfers of up to $2 billion. “We are investigating more than 10 cases with the total amount of up to $2 billion,” said a spokeswoman for the prosecutor general. Danske Bank — which said in 2018 that some $200 billion of suspicious transfers had been made through its unit in Estonia — was not immediately available for comment.
