COPENHAGEN, Oct 17 (Reuters) - Denmark’s state prosecutor said on Wednesday it had received a report concerning Nordic bank Nordea and will now evaluate its contents.
“We can confirm that we have received a report regarding Nordea, which we are already handling a case against. We will of course look closely at the submitted material and we will coordinate with relevant authorities,” the State Prosecutor for Serious Economic and International Crime said on Twitter.
Sweden’s Economic Crime Authority said on Tuesday it had received documents from Hermitage Capital Management purporting to show that Nordea had breached its responsibilities under anti-money laundering laws.
The Danish prosecutor’s office declined to confirm whether the report was from Hermitage or to provide more detail when contacted by Reuters. (Reporting by Stine Jacobsen; editing by Jason Neely)
