Samoa’s central bank said it is conducting money laundering investigations on two venture capital investments in OneCoin’s church

According to Scoop, the Central Bank of Samoa said that two Samoa churches allegedly investing in a banned cryptocurrency (OneCoin) are being investigated for money laundering. The central bank quoted a report submitted by the New Zealand police saying that OneCoin used the two Samoa churches with branches in New Zealand and Australia to deliver millions of dollars to Samoa. Gilbert Wongsin, acting bank's acting governor, told RNZ Pacific on Tuesday that he is actively investigating the "Samoa Worship Centre" and the "Samoan Independent Seventh Day Adventist Church." He also mentioned: "We have reached agreement with the police on the information we have. The investigation will attempt to determine whether these churches violate Samoa's anti-money laundering laws."
