Probe Sought Into Bank Closing Arabs' Accounts
by Zahra Huber
A Muslim civil rights organization has asked the U.S. Treasury Department to investigate JPMorgan Chase & Co. for closing bank accounts of U.S. Arabs and Muslims.
The Southfield-based Council on American-Islamic Relations' Michigan chapter sent a letter Wednesday to the Treasury Department's Office of the Currency. The letter says CAIR and other organizations have received "a series of complaints" about Chase closing accounts.
Another civil rights group sent a letter in March to the Justice Department alleging similar actions by several banks.
