"The Justice Department is understood to be meticulously conducting interviews with one primary objective which is to identify and prosecute any individuals within the bank for which the evidence will support such an action. Prosecuting individuals is their number one priority," the source said on condition of anonymity. The Justice Department probe is also linked to bulk cash HSBC received from money-changing firms in Mexico the source said. The concern is that the bank may have handled money belonging to the Mexican drug cartels. What is clearly known is that one of the most dangerous white collar organised crime syndicates in living memory is continuing to operate in the tax havens of Gibraltar the British Virgin Islands and Nassau Bahamas with impunity controlling the massive multi-million dollar fraudulent parallel Carroll Trust embezzled funds.
In a further twist the HSBC Holdings chairman Douglas Flint continues to refuse to issue a detailed public statement to the world's media hungry for an explanation surrounding these sensational criminal allegations which now confront Europe's largest banking institution. It has emerged that the FBI files also seriously implicate the former chairman Lord Green who is now the UK Government's Trade Minister is known to have had a deep personal involvement in this shocking scandal that is sweeping Wall Street and the City of London.
In a November filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission HSBC stated that it remained "the subject of ongoing inquiries, including grand jury subpoenas and other requests for information by Government Agencies including the US Attorney's Office and the U.S. Department of Justice."
