Description

This was the biggest media investigation of money laundering during 2019. The team from SVT revealed that over 150 billion Euros from suspicious customers had been channeled through the Baltic branch of Swedbank. Some of the clients involved Paul Manafort, Victor Yanukovich, Russian oligarch Iskander Makhmudov and several other companies involved in organized crime. The stock price declined with over 10 billion dollars and the CEO and the director of the board resigned after the investigation. The story was spread all over the world as an example of how Scandinavia has been a part of the plundering of Russia.
