Raid at Deutsche Bank: Search measures are currently being carried out on Deutsche Bank premises based on a search warrant by the Frankfurt district court, as the Frankfurt public prosecutor announced on Friday.

Officials from the public prosecutor's office in Frankfurt, the Federal Criminal Police Office and the financial supervisory authority Bafin are involved in the action, the judiciary in Frankfurt announced.

The public prosecutor's office is currently unable to provide any further information due to the ongoing investigative measures.

A spokesman for Deutsche Bank said the investigations were related to reports of suspected money laundering that the institute had submitted.

The institute cooperates fully with the authorities.

The Bafin declined to comment.

After the searches became known, the shares of the money house came under pressure.

The papers give up their daily gains of 2.8 percent at times and are down 4.2 percent.
