Deutsche Bank has confirmed it faces a possible criminal investigation into spying allegations.
Germany's largest lender is accused of spying on two board members it suspected of leaking sensitive details, as well as one critical shareholder.
State prosecutors are now trying to establish whether to launch a formal criminal investigation, the BBC reported.
The bank refused to comment on reports that it had dismissed two of its staff members in connection with the claims.
The bank began its own inquiry into the spying allegations in May.
This independent investigation is now continuing, and a Deutsche Bank spokesman said it would not be commenting on the spying allegations until it was completed.
