about

This book gives a broad analysis of the legal issues raised by the international fight against money laundering. It offers extensive comparative research of the criminal and preventive law aspects from an international perspective. Most of this volume is devoted to specific legal problems that spring from the international nature of the money laundering phenomenon. It contains the most detailed overview yet published on the rules and practices of international cooperation in the fight against money laundering, and the jurisdictional questions that inevitably arise in this context.
