The international authorities expect you, as a person working in the professional services sector, to assist in the fight to bring these money launderers to justice, and if you miss the obvious signs of money laundering you will be guilty of a serious criminal offence yourself and subject to possible imprisonment.
After viewing this webcast you will be able to understand how the anti-money laundering regime works, where it comes from, how the problem of money laundering is tackled internationally and what you need to look out for.
