Several global banks, including Standard Bank, Citibank South Africa, and Standard Chartered Bank South Africa, moved large sums of allegedly illicit funds during nearly two decades, despite warnings about the organisations they were dealing with, BuzzFeed and other media reported on Sunday, citing documents submitted by banks to the government. The ICIJ reported that the files, which they called the FinCEN files, which are partly based on documents filed by banks and other financial firms with the US Department of Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, identify more than $2-trillion (or about N$32.6-trillion) of transactions between 1999 and 2017 that were flagged by internal compliance departments of financial institutions as possible money laundering or other criminal activity.
