Kyiv: A financial scandal involving money laundering in a major Danish bank, Danske Bank, is growing in Denmark.
This was reported by the local media.
As it became known, the European Commission demanded that the European Banking Authority (EBA) study a possible violation of EU legislation by Denmark, Latvia and Estonia. The commission also requires Denmark and Estonia to introduce in EU countries the fourth EU money-laundering directive.
According to media reports, this is the first time that the European Commission requires the EBA to check for possible offenses in the participating countries.
"In order to protect the security of Europeans and ensure the reliability of the financial system, all member states must comply with EU laws against money laundering," commented on the incident to the European Commission.
As previously reported, the president of the European Central Bank called on the eurozone member countries to pay off all their debts , which could later strengthen the currency bloc kduring possible economic fluctuations, such as the UK leaving the EU.
