COPENHAGEN Feb 7 Denmark's public prosecutor
for serious economic and international crime is investigating
Danske Bank over price manipulation of a
particularly serious nature, the bank said on Friday.
This has also been confirmed by the public prosecutor.
The bank said four employees from the banking operation and
its mortgage lending unit Realkredit Danmark violated internal
rules and may potentially have manipulated prices.
It said that it had found no evidence that other staff
members were involved in the transactions. The four employees
and their two superiors have been suspended, it said.
"We consider the matter to be very serious and are
cooperating fully with the authorities," Chief Executive Thomas
Borgen said in the announcement.
