The Banksters

EU Justice Commissioner Vera Jourova on Thursday said €200 billion ($235 billion) of suspicious transactions at Denmark's largest money lender is "the biggest scandal we have now in Europe."

Between 2007 and 2015, €200 billion worth of transactions made through the accounts of 15,000 non-resident clients were suspicious. The bank said it was unable to determine where the money came from, noting that some 23 percent of incoming funds were received from Russia.

Danske Bank is already facing a criminal investigation at home. In August, Danish state prosecutors said they were investigating serious economic and international crime linked to alleged money laundering.

 Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen said the "fact that Denmark has been at the center of money laundering of this size is frankly quite horrible."
