Danish police arrest dozens in large money laundering case



On Thursday 5 January, the Danish police announced that 135 persons were detained in large-scale investigations into suspicions of elderly fraudsters who had been laundering money.

This was done by calling seniors to convince them to transfer money to their bank accounts or provide personal banking information.

Torben Svarrer, chief of the special crime section of the police, stated that the suspects weren’t the ones responsible for the fraud. They were instead what the police called “mules”, people who let their bank accounts be used for laundering cash.

Svarner said that although 212 people were charged with money laundering in the case, some suspects are not yet available.

He stated that the operation which will involve over 600 police officers was in place since last fall.
