Estonian prosecutors ordered confiscation of €2M from ex-Danske Bank employee

Prosecutors in Estonia said they ordered a local court in July to confiscate roughly €2 million from a Latvian bank account belonging to a former Danske Bank A/S employee as part of a probe into suspected money laundering, Reuters wrote, citing Estonian newspaper Eesti Ekspress.

The employee was one of 10 client managers arrested in December 2018 over suspicions of facilitating money laundering at the Danish lender's Estonian branch, according to the report.

The news was confirmed by a spokeswoman for the Estonian general prosecutor, Reuters said.

Danske Bank was charged on four counts by Danish authorities in November 2018 in connection with the suspected laundering of up to €200 billion through the branch between 2007 and 2015.
