Swedbank Board of Directors made a decision to dismiss President of Bank Birgitte Bonnesen after reports about schemes of money laundering tied with the units of the financial institution in the Baltic States as Radio Liberty reported.
“Sweden TV (SVT) and its partners in the Baltic States spoke of the company, which used the account in Swedbank to supposedly conceal the briberies of former president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych. In a few days, the TV Company showed that this company, Vega holding, also made payments of Inlord Sales LLP, the British company, which was mentioned in Paul Manafort case,” the message said.
As we reported Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, is sentenced to 7,5 years imprisonment, as a result of court hearings on his case. Manafort has got approximately 47 months imprisonment from U.S. federal judge of Virginia State for fraudulence and tax evasion in the bank field last week.
Paul Manafort is charged with laundering money and evading taxes over ten years of cooperation with former Ukrainian leaders. Previously, an investigation team released over 300 documents, which reveal the details of Manafort's cooperation with the currently disbanded Party of Regions - the-then pro-presidential and ruling political force in Ukraine.
