A hard-hitting US Senate investigation has concluded that HSBC, Europe's largest bank, ignored warning signs that its global operations were being used by money launderers and potential terrorists.
The findings of the investigation will be aired Tuesday in Washington when HSBC officials will be called to account for the actions. The Senate committee released a 340-page report prior to that meeting that catalogued lax controls at the bank's operations. HSBC's Mexican division comes in for particularly hard criticism.
