STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – Sweden’s Economic Crime Authority said on Tuesday it received documents from Hermitage Capital Management purporting to show that Nordic bank Nordea <NDAFI.HE> <NDA.ST> breached its responsibilities under anti-money laundering laws.
“We have received documents from Hermitage regarding money-laundering and we’re evaluating which authority should handle this,” a spokesman for the body told Reuters.
He said it had not yet opened a formal investigation.
Nordea had no immediate comment.
