A report from OCCRP on 23 February was concerned with schemes involving Russia, Azerbaijan, the US, Iran, Switzerland, and Georgia, as well as a scam that defrauded Facebook out of nearly $100 million.  It says that this flowed through Danske Bank Estonia accounts between 2007 and 2015, when the bank was at the centre of one of Europe’s largest-ever money laundering scandals.  Late last year, investigators presented a 160-page report to the 19 bankers detailing the accusations against them – and this document has been obtained by Estonia’s Eesti Ekspress and shared with OCCRP and Danish newspaper Berlingske.  It outlines the charges that prosecutors expect to file in the coming months.
