Danske Bank Opened Internal Investigation to Discredit Whistleblower
According to a July 4th report in the Financial Times, whistleblower attorney Stephen M. Kohn, partner at Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto, sent a letter to Danish authorities alleging Danske Bank opened an internal investigation on Danske Bank whistleblower Howard Wilkinson, in an attempt to discredit and silence him.
Wilkinson is the former Danske bank manager that uncovered what may be the largest money laundering scandal in world banking history, with large sums of money being moved through the bank’s small Estonian branch.
The article states that Kohn, Wilkinson’s attorney, asked Danish prosecutors to launch a criminal investigation regarding Danske Bank’s retaliatory conduct toward Wilkinson.
