HSBC five-year deferred prosecution agreement in 2012 with the United States Department of Justice has finally come to a close. The prosecution agreement in 2012 arose from HSBC helping Mexican drug cartels launder money and breaching international sanctions by doing business with Iran. The prosecution was a $1.9 billion fine and the bank entered into a five-year deferred prosecution agreement in 2012.
