Dirty cash: Can the EU clean up its money-laundering problem?
Date created :
A flurry of revelations about EU banks being used to launder dirty cash have sullied the bloc's financial reputation in recent weeks and months. The biggest of the recent scandals involves the Estonian branch of Danske Bank – Denmark’s biggest lender. Meanwhile, Transparency International and Global Witness are calling for a crackdown on so-called "golden visa" schemes that they say open a back door into the EU for dirty money and terrorist financing.
In our debate, we ask renowned anti-corruption judge-turned-MEP Eva Joly, and former Maltese prime minister Alfred Sant MEP, whether the EU can clean up its money-laundering problem.
