Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik had a bank account also in Estonia and Latvia that he used for money-laundering.

According to dn.no, Breivik needed the bank accounts for laundering money that he made by selling forged certificates on the Internet.

Between 2003 and 2006 he is known to have invested about 230,000 euros in foreign bank accounts.

He had bank accounts in a total fo seven countries and 14 banks.

Breivik is said to have mainly used Latvian bank accounts for laundering funds, but he is also known to have bank accounts in Estonia, Lithuania, US and in several tax harbours.

After laundering money, he withdrew the cash from ATMs in Oslo in small amounts.

According a police investigation, he took the cash to his mother who put it in her bank account and later transferred to Breivik.

Breivik’s mother has admitted that she laundered about 25,000 euros for her son.

On 22 July 2011, Breivik bombed the government buildings in Oslo, which resulted in eight deaths. He then carried out a mass shooting at a camp on the island of Utøya where he killed 69 people, mostly teenagers.
