In Geneva, Switzerland, a bank and three restaurants had clogged toilets recently. Clogged with high-denomination Euro banknotes, that is. The Tribune de Geneve newspaper UBS bank in Geneva’s financial district, and three nearby bistros, found their facilities clogged with 500-euro notes within a few days of each other. The cash was confiscated during the investigation and it was unclear who would get it if it was found to be lawful. According to Reuters, a spokesman for prosecutors said there was no immediate reason to think it was dirty money. (Ummm, it is now.)
