Following claims that Icelandic fishing giant Samherji used tax havens and bank accounts at Norway's DNB bank to hide proceeds from illegally obtained fishing quotas in Namibia , NRK reported that documents show DNB allowed customer accounts to exist despite a lack of key information on the companies' actual owners.

DNB has previously stated that in May 2018, they closed the accounts of the shell company Cape Cod Financial Services (Cape Cod FS) in the tax haven Marshall Island, where Samherji was allegedly funneling its proceeds.
