WHAT IS MONEY LAUNDERING?
Money laundering is the term used for a number of offences involving the proceeds of crime or terrorism funds. The following constitute the act of money laundering:
- Concealing, disguising, converting, transferring criminal property or removing or
- Entering into or becoming concerned in an arrangement which you know or suspect facilitates the acquisition, retention, use or control of criminal property by or on behalf of another person; or
- Acquiring, using or possessing criminal property;
- Becoming concerned in an arrangement facilitating concealment, removal from the jurisdiction, transfer to nominees or any other retention or control of terrorist property (section 18 of the Terrorist Act 2000).
These are the primary money laundering offences and thus prohibited acts under the legislation. There are also two secondary offences: failure to disclose any of the primary offences and tipping off. Tipping off is where someone informs a person or people who are, or are suspected of being involved in money laundering, in such a way as to reduce the likelihood of their being investigated or prejudicing an investigation.
Potentially any member of staff could be caught by the money laundering provisions if they suspect money laundering and either become involved with it in some way and/or do nothing about it. This Policy sets out how any concerns should be raised.
Money laundering also is the process of channeling ‘bad’ money into ‘good‘ money in order to hide the fact the money originated from criminal activity. Money laundering often occurs in three steps: first, cash is introduced into the financial system by some means ("placement"), the second involves a financial transaction in order to camouflage the illegal source ("layering"), and the final step entails acquiring wealth generated from the transactions of the illicit funds ("integration").
Most money-laundering offences concern far greater sums of money since the greater the sum of money obtained from a criminal activity, the more difficult it is to make it appear to have originated from a legitimate source or transaction.
Whilst the risk to the companies of contravening the legislation is low, it is extremely important that all employees are familiar with their legal responsibilities: serious criminal sanctions may be imposed for breaches of the legislation. A key requirement is for employees to promptly report any suspected money laundering activity to the WEWE.GLOBAL and his Compliance Department.
