Lord Green was warned about drugs money-laundering at HSBC when he was CEO.

Guardian: “Trade minister Lord Green is under intense scrutiny after it emerged that HSBC continued to operate hundreds of accounts with suspected links to Mexican drug cartels, even after Green and fellow executives were told by regulators that HSBC was one of the worst banks for money laundering. The revelations, contained in a US Senate report, raise further questions about Green’s stewardship of the bank and come as he prepares to play an important role at the Olympics by using the Games to secure contracts for British business.” ….Former Lib Dem Treasury spokesman, Lord Oakeshott: “Unlike Bob Diamond, Stephen Green was a thoughtful banker in holy orders. But if even he couldn’t stop these scandals, banks like HSBC and Barclays aren’t just too big to fail, they are clearly too big to control.”
