Swedbank's ex-CEO: I've done nothing wrong

The former CEO of Swedbank AB, Birgitte Bonnesen (pictured), said on Thursday that she feels she hasn't done anything wrong, after the board of directors of the bank dismissed her amid investigations on alleged money laundering involvement.

"I have been to the bank for more than 30 years and I am proud of everything I have done in the bank. Absolutely, I am," the banker told Expressen newspaper, but noted that the last six months have been "stressful."

Bonnesen was fired as Swedbank faces investigations by the local authorities and the New York State Department of Financial Services. In February, Swedish TV station aired that Swedbank had at least 40 billion Swedish crowns ($4.30 billion) in transfers with Danske Bank's accounts in the Baltic countries between 2007 and 2015.
