"In money-laundering centers like Latvia there's a sense that their hands aren't really dirty"

"For 25 years, Rimsevics controlled everything," Guselnikov, the Norvik owner, said by phone from London. "He and his team are unmovable. He's been in charge of supervision since 1992 and all his employees have been there since the 1990s or 2000 and they owe him their careers and positions."

Since the North Korean fine, Guselnikov, who's also a British citizen, has lured two western security experts to Norvik's board: former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen and former German foreign intelligence chief August Hanning. Cofer Black, the former head of the CIA's counter-terrorism center, is also a director of a Latvian lender, Baltic International Bank.
