    Wana JF,
    Benki ya Standard Chartered ya Uingereza imeshutumiwa kwa "kuchakachua fedha" (Money Laundering) kwa niaba ya nchi ya Iran ambayo imewekewa vikwazo vya kiuchumi na nchi za magharibi.
    Benki hii ina matawi katika nchi nyingi duniani, ikiwemo Tanzania.

    [h=1]Standard Chartered Shares Plunge on Iran Money Laundering Accusations[/h] By Lianna Brinded: Subscribe to Lianna's RSS feed

    Standard Chartered shares fell the most in more than four years in early London trading after the New York State authorities accused the bank of acting as a "rogue institution" that hid $250bn worth of transactions tied to Iran and threatened to take away its US banking licence.



    The UK-listed bank, which earns the bulk of its profits in emerging markets, vehemently denied the accusations made by the state Department of Financial Services (DFS) in a statement released Tuesday.


    "The Group strongly rejects the position or the portrayal of facts as set out in the order issued by the DFS," said Standard Chartered's statement. "The Group had previously reported that it is conducting a review of its historical compliance and is discussing that review with US agencies, including the DFS, the Department of Justice, the Office of Foreign Assets Control, the Federal Reserve Group of New York and the District Attorney of New York. The disclosure appears in our Annual Results of 2010, 2011 and, again most recently, in the 2012 Interim Results in the Risk Review section at p.21 under Regulatory Changes and Compliance."

    Essentially, the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) says Standard Chartered spent the best part of 10 years, from 2001 to 2010, hiding billions of Iranian financial deals.

    The dollar transactions originated and terminated in European banks in the UK and the Middle East, and were cleared through its New York branch, the complaint said.
    Under the sanctions regime, until 2008, banks in the US in some circumstances were allowed so-called U-turns with Iranian financial institutions.
    U-turn transactions are money moved for Iranian clients among non-Iranian foreign banks such as in Britain and the Middle East and cleared through the US, but which neither started nor ended in Iran.
    To ascertain whether these transactions are permitted or not under the current U-turn laws, US clearing banks use the wire-transfer messages they get from banks involved.
    If the banks do not have enough information, they are supposed to freeze the assets.
    "By 2008 it was clear that this system of wire-transfer checks had been abused," the regulator says, and U-turns with Iran were banned.
    Standard Chartered is said to have made millions in fees for those 60,000 secret transactions for "Iranian financial institutions".
    SWIFT is the international payments scheme. When ordinary people have to make money transfers across borders, they often need a SWIFT or BIC number of their bank.
    The bank is accused of falsifying SWIFT wire payment directions by stripping the message of unwanted data that showed the clients were Iranian, replacing it with false entries

    Bora kabisa, maana kama standard chartered itawekewa vikwazo na Marekani, basi ndio mwisho wake huo, maana biashara kubwa iko huko. yaani hawa jamaa wanakikua vikwazo vilivyowekwa na nchi zao wenyewe !!!

    Sasa ndio najua kuwa benki nyingi kubwa duniani zinashamiri kwa biashara haramu.
    Barclays hivi karibuni ilikabwa na kashfa ya kuchakachua viwango vya riba ili ipate faida kubwa, na sasa tunasikia standard chartered nayo inachakachua pesa haramu kwa ajili ya Iran !!!
