United Kingdom: Two further suspects identified in £16m Belfast bank money laundering case, court told

Two further suspects have been identified in an alleged £16m money laundering operation centred at a bank in Belfast, a court was told on Tuesday.

They are set to be questioned by detectives investigating claims that a cash deposit racket was being run by a Chinese crime gang.

Twelve people have already been charged with roles in depositing bundles of money to be spread across the UK.

The alleged operation involved up to 8,000 transactions on 22 separate customer accounts at a city centre branch of an undisclosed bank between January 2018 and May 2019.

Lodgements were made through an ATM system on a daily basis for hours at a time, with details entered for the money to be forwarded on to 3,500 other accounts, according to police.
