Public prosecutor searches federal ministries for money laundering investigations

In connection with money laundering investigations, the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Federal Ministry of Justice have come under the sights of the Osnabrück public prosecutor’s office. The offices of both ministries were searched on Thursday. The investigations are directed against the special unit for combating money laundering, the Central Office for Financial Transaction Investigations, located at Customs and thus at the Ministry of Finance. According to the public prosecutor’s office, they have been investigating since 2020 because they should not have forwarded suspicious money laundering reports made by banks to the police and the judiciary. The two ministries agreed to cooperate with the public prosecutor’s office, but underlined that no investigation would be carried out against members of the ministries.
