MALTA: SPARKASSE BANK FINED €217,000 FOR AML BREACHES

The Times of Malta reported on 27 July that Sparkasse had received a €217,635 fine by the FIAU after an inspection found “serious shortcomings” in the bank’s money laundering safeguards. Sparkasse was found to have carried out only basic checks on accounts held by certain investment services companies. Furthermore, the FIAU found Sparkasse failed to collect data on source of wealth and estimated size of transactions, instead relying on information provided to it by other entities.
