Deutsche Bank to pay $100.7m to settle Jeffrey Epstein accusers’ suit: WSJ


BENGALURU – Deutsche Bank has agreed to pay US$75 million (S$100.6 million) to settle a proposed class-action lawsuit alleging the lender facilitated the late Jeffrey Epstein’s sex-trafficking ring, The Wall Street Journal reported late on Wednesday, citing lawyers who sued the bank on behalf of alleged victims.

The suit was filed in 2022 in New York by an anonymous woman on behalf of herself and other accusers, alleging Deutsche Bank did business with Epstein for five years knowing he was engaged in sex-trafficking activity, the report said.
