Prosecutors have filed criminal charges against five OneCoin promoters in Finland.

Specific details of the case are light, but we know four are up for tax fraud offenses committed between 2015 to 2018.

The fifth defendant has been charged with money laundering.

First news of the criminal case against three defendants broke back in April. This followed on from the seizure of €179,000 EUR in July 2018.

Since April an additional two promoters have been charged. All five defendants have since plead not guilty.

The case is currently scheduled to go to trial in Ostrobothnia District Court on November 28th.

Finnish authorities estimate that up to 20,000 residents of Finland participated in the OneCoin Ponzi scheme.

Finland’s NBI had the opportunity to put a stop to OneCoin nationally back in 2015.

Instead regulatory red tape saw the matter punted back and forth between the NBI and public prosecutors.
