Nordea's offices raided by SOeIK - report

Danish State Prosecutor for Serious Economic and International Crime (SOeIK) raided Nordea Bank Abp's headquarters in Copenhagen last week,​ seizing a large number of physical and digital documents seemingly related to an ongoing Danske Bank money laundering investigation, Borsen reported on Monday.

According to the article, several hundred customers from former Soviet states channeled billions through the bank's Vesterport department from 2004 to 2014, when the unit was closed. The bank is suspected of not doing enough to enforce compliance controls.

"We cooperate fully with SOeIK to ensure that they have access to all relevant information. Beyond that, we do not have any further addition at this time," head of Nordea's Personal Banking unit Frank Vang-Jensen told the media.
