Abstract

The laundering of money appears to have reached almost epidemic proportions, due primarily to the increase in profit from the sale of illegal drugs; the growth of organised crime, particularly in Russia; the sale of oil outside of OPEC quotas; and the siphoning off of aid funds. The bulk of these funds are washed through the global financial system before arriving at their final destination … a high‐street bank.
