It resulted in penalties and strict supervision regime to address the identified lapses.

Standard Chartered, Equity, Kenya Commercial Bank, Diamond Trust Bank & Co-operative Bank have been under investigation with regard to criminal culpability.

The banks are suspected of violating laws that govern them when it comes to provisions of proceeds of crime and anti-money laundering.

Lapses in the reporting of suspicious transaction reports to the Financial Reporting Centre are also being questioned.
