Question: What is BCCI?
Answer: BCCI stands for Bank of Credit and Commerce International, although since it became embroiled in scandal, wags have renamed it "Bank of Crooks and Criminals International."
Over the years, BCCI enjoyed acclaim in developing nations for its practice of extending credit in areas Western banks avoided.
But it also has been linked for years to criminal enterprises -- tied, for example, to drug-related money-laundering activities, including some involving Manuel Antonio Noriega, the former Panamanian dictator. In 1990, two of BCCI's units pleaded guilty federal court in Tampa, Fla., to money-laundering. Later that year, six current and former BCCI employees were convicted of conspiring to launder $32 million in cocaine money.
On July 5 (1991), banking regulators from around the world teamed up to shut down most BCCI operations, alleging widespread fraud.
