17 January 2023 – NAB responds to financial discrimination story

Within 24 hours of the Australian Financial Review publishing a story (behind a paywall) on banking discrimination against the sex industry, the National Australia Bank responds by publishing a short statement on its own website confirming it continues to ban all lawful sex industry businesses across Australia. The bank says there is a high likelihood of money laundering and human rights abuses in the sex industry in Australia.
