BBC News published this video item, entitled “Leaked documents reveal UK banks helped fraudsters and money-laundering – BBC News” – below is their description.
Leaked documents have revealed how some UK banks have helped criminals, money launderers and Russians under sanctions – and have also failed to stop crime when they suspected it. The documents – known as the FinCEN files – were leaked to Buzzfeed News and shared with the BBC by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. They show that London is a hub for money laundering – with billions of pounds worth of suspected dirty money moving through the banking system.
