MELBOURNE, Aug 11 (Reuters) - Reserve Bank of Australia Governor Philip Lowe said on Friday accusations of money laundering and financing extremism levelled against Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) are a very serious matter.
There needs to be accountability at CBA if shortcomings are identified, Lowe told a parliamentary economics committee.
Financial intelligence agency AUSTRAC launched civil penalty proceedings against Australia's No.1 lender last week for "serious and systemic non-compliance", in the biggest case of its kind in Australia and the first against a major bank.
