Rothschild under criminal investigation for money laundering

Authorities in Switzerland have launched a criminal investigation into the Rothschild bank for money laundering.

According to Switzerland’s Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA), the Rothschild family failed to reveal the source of assets belonging to various billionaire criminals.

The Swiss regulator claims that the Rothschild Bank is in “serious breach” of “due diligence, reporting and documentation requirements.” reports: The case involving the Rothschild Bank was one of seven enforcement proceedings launched by the FINMA against 1MDB amid suspicions of a serious breach of Swiss banking laws.

In the case of Rothschild, the FINMA accused the bank of not only establishing business dealings with dubious customers suspected of money laundering activities, but “considerably expand[ing]” their business dealings with them and reporting suspicions “only after a substantial delay,” thereby breaching the bank’s reporting requirements. Rothschild Bank AG was also said to have “failed to adequately document” high-risk transactions.

The regulator has appointed an audit agent to oversee an internal overhaul of the bank’s business practices. A Rothschild spokesperson told Reuters that the bank regretted the breaches and said that it was “constantly” strengthening its procedures “to identify and combat the increasingly sophisticated financial crime faced in the industry.”

1MBD became the center of a financial scandal involving billions of dollars in 2011 after authorities started an investigation into alleged illegal practices. The FBI joined the case in 2015, with investigators from Hong Kong, Singapore, Luxembourg, the UAE, the Seychelles and Australia also involved. The 1MBD scandal saw vast sums of money siphoned from Malaysia’s sovereign wealth fund into the hands of corrupt officials. The scandal led to the arrest of former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak earlier this year. Najib was charged with criminal breach of trust and abuse of funds in connection with the affair.

Switzerland’s attorney general is engaged in a criminal probe of two other Swiss banks, as well as six individuals. Several other banks have been reprimanded.


    • Why do you choose to hate an entire group of people who you never met? You might know a few Jews but with your opinion about them, I highly doubt it.

      • Because folks are prone to spout utter garbage, even when their brain is telling them “Whoa, better put on the brakes” sometimes they floor their tongue-pedal instead! ‘Leftists’ (not true ones, just the kind that taken to calling themselves “leftists” lately, you know -:the ones you ‘dare not disagree with’,) are becoming more prone to this lately, I’ve noticed.

      • The Jews rejected and had Jesus killed, anyone who rejects Jesus is the enemy of God and any true christian

    • He, and the people that he engages with, are ALL satanists. Calling him a Jew is like calling Hitler a Christian.

  1. Think the US should help humanity and file RICO charges against Rothchilds as well! Then they wouldn’t have any where else to run and hide but China (yeah, good luck with that)!

  2. that is all they do, is clean their money. they will just print more and buy off the investigation. no sweat at all.
