[BRUSSELS] European Union states are discussing an action plan to counter money laundering at banks that would involve clearer powers for supervisors and a review of a series of recent high-profile cases, a draft document seen by Reuters showed.

The paper which is subject to changes until its adoption in early December, mandates the European Central Bank and the European Commission to conduct a review of alleged money laundering cases at EU banks by mid-2019 with the view of "possible additional actions" to strengthen the EU legal framework.
