COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Bill Browder, once the biggest foreign money manager in Russia who is now campaigning to expose corruption, has filed a criminal complaint against Denmark’s Danske Bank (DANSKE.CO) in Estonia.
Two weeks ago Browder filed a criminal complaint against the bank with Danish authorities over alleged money laundering at the bank’s Estonian branch in the past.
“We can confirm that he has filed a complaint but the exact content of that complaint we are not at liberty to disclose to the general public,” a spokesman for Estonia’s Prosecutor’s Office told Reuters.
A Danske Bank spokesman said the bank was looking into the new complaint and would decide whether to comment on it later on Wednesday.
Bill Browder did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
