    Britain freezes bank account linked to Azerbaijani Laundromat

    British investigators have frozen a bank account linked to a multi-billion dollar Azerbaijani money-laundering scheme that a network of investigative reporters has alleged rinsed dirty money mainly through four, UK-registered shell companies.

The NCA declined to give further details or divulge whether the frozen account was also linked to Danske Bank, the Copenhagen-based lender at the centre of a 200-billion-euro ($227 billion) money laundering scandal.The "Azerbaijani Laundromat" is a term coined last year by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), a network of investigative journalists, after an investigation with Denmark's Berlinske newspaper and others.
