Police have confirmed that the former head of Danske Bank in Estonia, the unit at the center of a $220 billion money-laundering scandal, took his own life.

Aivar Rehe, who was chief executive officer of the branch until he left in 2015, was found dead close to his home in greater Tallinn on Wednesday. At the time, police didn’t disclose the cause of death, which they said was out of consideration for the family.
