A former Deutsche Bank employee in Moscow lost a lawsuit over what she claimed was a wrongful dismissal linked to an investigation into possible money laundering at the bank’s Russian unit.
Bloomberg News reports that a Moscow labor court threw out the claims by Dina Maksutova, who worked in Russian equity sales, said Marietta Nikolaeva, a spokeswoman for Deutsche Bank.
The court is scheduled to continue hearing a wrongful dismissal suit brought by Tim Wiswell, former head of equities at the bank, on Thursday.
The Russian central bank fined Deutsche Bank about $4,200 for compliance failures in a probe into alleged trading violations at the Moscow office, saying the bank had fallen victim to an illegal scheme, according to people familiar with the matter.
