Estonia launches separate Swedbank money laundering investigation

TALLINN, Oct 29 (Reuters) - Estonia’s police and prosecutor have launched a separate criminal investigation of Swedbank over alleged money laundering in 2011-2017, the state prosecutor’s office said on Tuesday.

“Based on the current information Estonia was possibly used as a transit country in a money laundering scheme,” it said in a statement.

Estonia has earlier said its investigation of Swedbank activities were part of an investigation into Danske Bank money laundering in Estonia.

Swedbank was not immediately available to comment. (Reporting by Tarmo Virki Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
