Former CEO Of Collapsed Austrian Laundromat Meinl Bank Is To Be Extradited To The U.S.
A London court today granted the U.S. extradition request against the former CEO of the collapsed Austrian Meinl Bank, Peter Weinzierl. The decision is not final; Weinzierl will now appeal to the High Court. The U.S. accuses him, another ex-bank manager, and Julius Meinl V. of money laundering and bribery surrounding the Brazilian Odebrecht Group scandal. Meinl Bank has been notorious for the laundering of Russian money.
