? Tether’s new banking partner may be involved in money laundering in the Odebrecht scheme

Brazilian law enforcement agencies have appealed to the authorities of the Bahamas to assist in the investigation of suspicious transactions of Deltec Bank & Trust, the new partner of the Tether Limited reports the O Globo.

The Federal Prosecutor’s Office of the State of São Paulo deals with the case of Paulo Vieira de Souza, the former director of the DERSA road construction company. De Souza is charged with taking bribes from the concern Odebrecht.

It is assumed that the head of DERSA transferred about $ 25 million to the accounts of the Panamanian offshore company Nantes Group, which was serviced by a private Swiss bank Bordier & Cie. According to law enforcement, de Souza was the direct beneficiary of these accounts.
