Several major Nordic banks must disclose information about their dealings with the law firm Mossack Fonseca in Panama Papers case, but Norwegian DNB will be freed from the case.

We were in contact with DNB in New York Wednesday and it has not received any inquiry. So it is true that we are not on the list, says Communications Manager Even Westerveld in an email to Dagens Næringsliv.
In Sweden four of the country’s largest banks must answer to a series of questions about the dealings with the law firm at the center of the leaks, according to Svenska Dagbladet. Nordea, Swedbank, Handelsbanken and SEB, all with branches in New York, has received ten days to respond.

Mossack Fonseca, according to Panama Papers documents, helped customers and financial institutions to put their money into tax havens.
