Deutsche Bank Charged Over Paschi Accounts as Legal Hits Mount

  • Nomura, Paschi staff also charged for falsifying bank’s books
  • Judge schedules trial to begin in Milan on December 15

Deutsche Bank AG was dealt a fresh blow on Saturday when an Italian court charged the company, an employee and five former executives for colluding with Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena SpA to falsify the Italian lender’s accounts in 2008.

Michele Faissola, who oversaw global rates at the time, and Ivor Dunbar, former co-head of global capital markets, were among those indicted in a Milan court. Both were top deputies to former Deutsche Bank co-chief executive officer Anshu Jain, and both have left the company.
