Standard Chartered billboards hang above a bank branch in Hong Kong on August 6, 2014New York state's banking regulator hit Standard Chartered Bank with a $300 million fine and restrictions on its dollar-clearing business for not detecting possible money laundering. The New York Department of Financial Services (DFS) said the British bank's internal compliance systems had failed to detect or act on a large number of "potentially high-risk transactions" mostly originating from Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates. The new punishment came two years after the bank paid US regulators $667 million to settle charges it violated US sanctions by handling thousands of money transactions involving Iran, Myanmar, Libya and Sudan. A DFS monitor appointed in 2012 to keep an eye on the bank discovered that it had not detected the allegedly high-risk transactions from Hong Kong and the UAE or reported them as it should have, the department said.
