Bank Leumi Will Pay US for Allegedly Abetting Tax Fraud


Bank Leumi announced this morning (Sunday) that it is deep in negotiations with the American Justice Department in order to take care of suspicions that the bank helped its customers commit tax fraud in the United States between the years 2002-2010.

The bank is expected to pay the US roughly one billion shekels ($289 million) as part of the deal to rectify the situation.
