In December last year Estonian police detained ten former employees of the local branch of Danske Bank as part of an investigation into international money laundering.
Five of the suspects are named on a list of 26 Danske Bank employees, which financier Bill Browder handed over to the Estonian authorities last year. Prosecutors in Estonia, who are now looking into money laundering allegations at Swedbank, expect to make further arrests.
Dagens Industri reports today that sources have told the newspaper that at least one of the suspects has also been employed by Swedbank.
