Dirty Money #4 – Cartel Bank
For decades, HSBC, one of the world’s largest banks, laundered hundreds of millions of dollars for Mexican drug cartels. Senator Elizabeth Warren, dogged journalists and prosecutors try to hold the bankers to account.
Not as interesting as the other episodes. This has fewer revelations. It just seems obvious that as the drug trade between the USA and Mexico has continues, there must be big banks involved that looked the other way.
The amazing thing was that at the end, after paying over a billion dollars of fines, the bank still continues and nobody has been prosecuted.
