LONDON - At many large banks knowingly or unknowingly involved a worldwide network for money laundering by Russian criminals. Reported The Guardian Monday, based on documents from a group of cooperating investigative journalists, the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP). The same group also published the Panama Papers. The files show that between 2010 and 2014 was laundered from Russia at least twenty billion dollars through accounts of foreign banks.
The cash flows are linked to a network called Global Laundromat 'or the' global washing machine. The big British bank HSBC was used for 545 million dollars through a branch of the bank in Hong Kong. Also, ING Groep NV is mentioned, $ 2.4 million would be laundered through the ING.
