The fine was imposed by the intelligence service of the financial police, for violation of the law on money laundering. The bank appealed to the ministry, but Kaliňák confirmed the fine. Privatbanka failed to report to Slovak authorities its unusual financial transactions. Currently, the bank can still appeal to the country’s Supreme Court.
