Raids due to sanctions violations - investigations continue - politics

Investigations continue a day after the raid on two dozen properties nationwide in connection with violations of EU sanctions against supporters of Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin. The searches have not yet been completed, the Munich II public prosecutor said on Thursday. The authority is investigating possible violations of the Foreign Trade and Payments Act. The public prosecutor's office in Frankfurt and the Federal Criminal Police Office are also investigating suspected money laundering. Extensive evidence was temporarily secured during the searches, said North Rhine-Westphalia's Finance Minister Marcus Optendrenk (CDU).
