ΕΛΕΟΣ. ΩΣ ΠΟΤΕ ΚΥΡΙΟΙ ΤΗΣ ΔΙΚΑΙΟΣΥΝΗΣ;

 Στα πράσα. Με ντοκουμέντα, κωδικούς και μιλιούνια μαύρο χρήμα. Όλα πάντα υπο την "σκέπη" του δισεκατομμυριούχου Λάτση, ιδιοκτήτη της EFG Private Bank. Ουδείς σε αυτό το τόπο δεν έχει το φιλότιμο, να ζητήσει όλα τα στοιχεία για να διερευνηθούν, τα διαπιστωμένα εγκλήματα, κατά πόσο συνδέονται με την Eurobank των Νανοπουλαίων Καραμουζαίων και άλλων εκλεκτών κυρίων; Ουδείς;      

The Financial Conduct Authority has fined EFG Private Bank £4.2m for serious failures in its anti-money laundering controls which spanned over three years. EFG is the UK private banking subsidiary of Switzerland-based global private banking group EFGI Group.

 It provides private banking and wealth management services to high net worth individuals including some from overseas jurisdictions recognised as presenting a higher risk of money laundering and bribery and corruption. 

At the end of 2011 around 400 of EFG’s 3,342 customer accounts were deemed by the firm to present a higher risk of money laundering or reputational risk, and of these 94 were held by politically exposed persons.

An FSA investigation found that 17 out of 36 reviewed EFG customer files opened between December 2007 and January 2011 showed significant money laundering risks, but insufficient records of how those risks had been mitigated. Of the 17 files, 13 related to allegations of criminal activity or that the customer had been charged with criminal offences including corruption and money laundering. In one account, EFG’s due diligence found a prospective client had acquired their wealth through their father, who was alleged to have links with organised crime, money laundering and murder. 

There was inadequate information on file to explain how the bank concluded this risk was acceptable. FCA head of enforcement and financial crime Tracey McDermott says: “Banks are the first line of defence


to make sure that proceeds of crime do not find their way into the UK. “In this case while EFG’s policies looked good on paper, in practice it manifestly failed to ensure it was addressing its anti-money laundering risks. “Poor implementation of its agreed policies risked the bank handling the proceeds of crime. These failures merited a strong penalty from the FCA.” The FSA fined Coutts & Co £8.8m in March 2012 for failing to establish effective anti-money laundering systems. It also fined Habib Bank £525,000 in May 2012 for similar failings.
