Austrac filed an amended statement of claim against the Commonwealth Bank of Australia on 14 December, alleging that there have been further breaches of anti-money laundering and terrorism financing laws since it first launched legal action against the bank. The new allegations include claims that CBA allowed money to be withdrawn from a bank account even though there were suspicions that the account-holder had links to terrorism. CBA has admitted to more than 53,000 of the breaches of money-laundering laws that Austrac had alleged in its original statement of claim.
