OSLO (Reuters) – Norwegian police are investigating DNB <DNB.OL>, the country’s largest bank, to establish whether any laws were broken in its handling of payments from an Icelandic fisheries firm to Namibia, police said in a statement on Thursday.

In a separate statement, DNB said the investigation meant it had the opportunity to share with police everything it knows about the case. The bank said last week that it was investigating media reports of alleged improper payments by Icelandic company Samherji to Namibian officials.
