From 2006 to 2015, Aivar Rehe was responsible for the Estonian business of Danske Bank - and this period also includes numerous suspected cases in the money laundering scandal of the Scandinavian financial institution. Now the 56-year-old manager has been found dead in Estonia. According to the news agency Reuters and Danmarks Radio.
By the end of 2018, the Danish Public Prosecutor's Office had filed charges against Danske Bank. These are alleged violations of money laundering regulations of their branch in Estonia.
Aivar deer did not run as a suspect
In several countries, including the US, investigations are pending against Danske Bank over payments. However, deer was not led here as a suspect, but a witness, said a spokeswoman for the prosecutor in Estonia.
Aivar Rehe has always refused to know about money laundering. According to Estonian media, Danmarks Radio reports that the police have found no evidence of a crime.
An internal investigation by Denmark's largest bank revealed that most of the € 200 billion spent on the Estonian branch between 2007 and 2015 was suspect. The money came, inter alia, from Russia and other former republics of the former Soviet Union. The Deutsche Bank is also involved in the scandal.
