WIRECARD PROCESSED PAYMENTS FOR MALTESE CASINO LINKED TO ’NDRANGHETA

On 3 August, KYC 360 reported an Financial Times article claiming that Wirecard processed transactions for a Malta-based online casino that was later found to have laundered funds for the ’Ndrangheta mafia organisation.  Italian courts determined that the gaming company, Malta-based CenturionBet, was used by an arm of the ’Ndrangheta to launder millions of euros in criminal profits outside of Italy.  According to the newspaper, Wirecard separately processed payments for another large gambling company in Malta that was later accused by Italian authorities of laundering funds for organised crime groups.
