Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism report published


The House of Lords Committee report on Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism was published today, 22 July.

Earlier this year, Queen Mary law students taking the LLM class in Economic Crime submitted evidence to the House of Lords Committee, under the guidance of the course leaders Professor Peter Alldridge and Dr Valsamis Mitsilegas.

The Committee looked at the EU and international cooperation to prevent money laundering and the financing of terrorism. They considered how effectively EU Member States, the UN and others cooperate in this area, and whether there is an effective formal legal framework for criminal justice cooperation.

On the basis of the submission, Professor Alldridge and Dr Mitsilegas gave oral evidence to the Committee on 1 April 2009.
