Dirty Money has been extensively rewritten and expanded to provide an up-to-date assessment of this fast evolving subject area. In addition to taking into account such major developments as the revised Recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (FATF, an intergovernmental body), as agreed in June 2003, and the second European Directive, it has been restructured so as to fully reflect the high priority which has been afforded by the international community since September 2001 to the financing of terrorism. The third edition includes coverage of relevant initiatives taken in this latter sphere by the United Nations, the FATF, the Council of Europe, the Organization of American States and other institutions and groupings and places them in context.The book is, as with the previous editions, designed for a wide audience. It will be of particular value for government officials and regulators with responsibility for money laundering and terrorist finance issues, for their counterparts in banks, non-bank financial institutions, as well as members of professions such as lawyers and accountants, to whom many of the counter-measures in question have now been applied. Finally, scholars and university students will continue to find Dirty Money a valuable tool for both research and teaching.
