Another European bank faces a money laundering probe. Dutch prosecutors are investigating ABN Amro, one of the country's top lenders. The Netherlands has been the target of several such inquiries. Investigators have estimated that over 14 billion dollars were laundered through the country each year between 2004 and 2014. Last year Dutch bank ING was hit with a 900 million dollar fine. Shares in ABN Amro fell about ten percent following Thursday's (September 26) news. It's all part of move by European authorities to crack down on lax monitoring of illegal transactions. On Wednesday (September 25) German investigators raided Deutsche Bank in connection with a money laundering scandal at Denmark's Danske Bank. The same day saw a former Danske Bank executive found dead in Estonia. Aivar Rehe was head of the lender's operations there until 2015. His branch was under investigation over suspicious payments totalling 220 billion dollars. Police said Rehe's death was not being treated as suspicious.

Dutch bank ABN Amro said on Wednesday it would not charge negative interest on deposits up to 100,000 euros ($110,200), as it comes under political pressure to shield retail clients from the effects of ultra-low interest rates. European banks are grappling with the consequences of the European Central Bank's September decision to cut its key deposit rate further into negative territory, making it tougher for them to earn money from their traditional lending business. Dutch finance minister Wopke Hoekstra in September said he would talk to banks about the consequences of negative interest rates, but resisted calls by politicians for an outright ban of them on smaller deposits.
