Ashley V. Deutsche Bank Ag 12-Cv-04400

Deutsche Bank AG, Standard Chartered Plc, and Danske Bank A/S were sued by the families of Americans killed and wounded during the war in Afghanistan who claim they “knowingly facilitated transfers of millions” of dollars that provided aid to terrorists in the region.

The banks and two money transmitters functioned as “laundromats,” allowing terrorist financiers to secretly move money and evade detection, according to the lawsuit.

Transactions involving syndicate agents, operatives, and fronts in countries including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Russia, and the United Arab Emirates raised red flags that they were dealing with terrorist money, the suit claims.
