Coverage includes the Wolfsberg Principles, Financial Action Task Force guidance, the U.S. Patriot Act, and the latest from both the EU and Bank for International Settlements. The IMF estimates that two to five per cent of the global GDP – $590 billion to $1.5 trillion – is laundered every year.

Money laundering is not an innocuous crime. It leaves countless victims in its wake including banks. This book relates the story of banks, money laundering and the global anti-money laundering effort. It reveals various the dilemmas that banks are facing in light of current anti-money laundering measures, and emphasises the deficiencies of the bank-customer relationship in protecting banks against the fallouts of money laundering and money laundering control. Key issues such as the nature of so-called 'dirty money', the illusion of bank confidentiality and the deficiencies in the global anti-money laundering regime are underscored. The money laundering control efforts of the European Commission, England (as member state of the European Union), the United States and South Africa as developing nation are highlighted as well. This book fundamentally reveals that banks are the best line of defence in the war against money laundering and global crime. Regardless, unless the recommendations forwarded in this book are implemented, banks will not only continue to stand defenceless against potential civil litigation, but global money laundering control will remain a mere pipedream.

Over the last few years money laundering has become a global and enormous worldwide phenomenon therefore no country is immune. Estimates have to be treated with caution but the International Monetary Fund estimated over ten years ago that the aggregate size of money laundering was somewhere between 2-5% of the world GDP (between 800 million and 2 trillion US dollars in today’s terms). This book considers the problem of money laundering globally and in Kosovo especially which is a cash-based economy and makes vulnerable to money laundering activities and terrorist financing. It emphasizes the definition, trends, methods, effects and phases of money laundering and also explains the role of the national and international organizations and initiatives in fight against money laundering such as Financial Action Task Force, OECD, United Nations, World Bank, International Monetary Fund etc.

The problem of money laundering arises few decades back. It is very complicated and lethal crime. It is changing its ways on daily basis. This is one of the main reasons that till now the experts couldn’t give compact definition to this crime. Absence of compact definition is forcing the law enforcers to remain vigilant. For this purpose the duty of reporting the crime of money laundering is imposed on bank, financial intuitions and many other people from different independent professions. In case of failure the penalties for banks and financial institutions are very harsh. The nature of this crime has forced the countries to make very strict laws to combat money laundering crime. But these strict laws have some negative effects. The most important effect is on the privacy of people.

The term money laundering brings to our mind those nefarious activities of criminals who provide an envelope to “slush funds” in order to exhibit those as genuine money. As per an estimate of the IMF, the aggregate size of money laundering in the world could be somewhere between two and five percent of the world’s GDP. Money-laundering has acquired a global character that not only threatens security, but also compromises the stability, transparency, and efficiency of financial systems. Money-laundering techniques are becoming more sophisticated and complex with each passing day. Across the world, financial institutions such as banks, insurers, and securities are usually considered in the front line in the war against illicit money movements. Therefore, they are required to introduce and implement systems to prevent such anti-social elements from using banking channels for money laundering. As part of this process Ethiopia has promulgated a law against money laundering and this book has made an in-depth analysis of the laws in this perspective vis-a-vis international tenets.

Based on the model analysis of the International Financial Action Group in the first part of this book, we investigated the development of money laundering techniques in different economic sectors: financial sector, commercial, real estate, casinos, gambling and electronic auctions. We emphasize that the description of money laundering techniques in this chapter has a declarative value, and is far from having exhausted the subject. The contemporary peculiarities of money laundering, namely: economic magnitude of the phenomenon, its links of emphasized transnational nature with organized crime, the professionalism of money launderers, etc. is the reason that justifies our interest to turn our attention to the connections that exist between economic-financial crime, especially tax evasion, money laundering, and tax havens.
