This is the story about Swedbank and its involvement in the biggest ever money-laundering scandal in modern history. The investigative team of SVT exposed that Swedbank has been used for systematic money laundering for nearly a decade. Over 140 billion euros have been funneled through their non resident portfolio in the Baltics. SVT also revealed how the top management of the bank withheld information from American investigators about suspicious customers.

Transactions show that Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort received nearly one million dollars in black money through Swedbank from the ex-president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych.

After the investigation the CEO of Swedbank was fired and the Director of the Board resigned. To this date Swedbank is under criminal investigation in Sweden, US and the Baltics and the expected outcome is billions of dollars in fines.
