Danske Bank has also now received requests for information from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) in connection with a criminal investigation relating to the bank’s Estonian branch conducted by the DOJ.
Danske Bank is cooperating with these authorities.
The timing of completion of the investigations by, and subsequent discussions with, the authorities is uncertain, as is the outcome.
“We are cooperating with the authorities investigating us as a result of the case. However, it is too early to speculate on any outcome of the investigations,” says interim CEO of Danske Bank, Jesper Nielsen.
