Dirty cash: Can the EU clean up its money-laundering problem?
Subscribe to France 24 now: http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN A flurry of revelations about EU banks being used to launder dirty cash have sullied the bloc's financial reputation in recent weeks and months. The biggest of the recent scandals involves the Estonian branch of Danske Bank – Denmark’s biggest lender. Meanwhile, Transparency International and Global Witness are calling for a crackdown on so-called "golden visa" schemes that they say open a back door into the EU for dirty money and terrorist financing. In our debate, we ask renowned anti-corruption judge-turned-MEP Eva Joly, and former Maltese prime minister Alfred Sant MEP, whether the EU can clean up its money-laundering problem.

Anti-Money-Laundering, Counterterrorism Financing and Financial Crime
Anti-Money-Laundering, Counterterrorism Financing and Financial Crime: The Critical Role of Financial Institutions and How It Affects You Talk by Hue Dang ’92, Head of Asia for the Association of Certified Anti-Money-Laundering Specialists. Media coverage in the last several years of financial penalties against global banks such as BNP Paribas ($8.9 billion) or HSBC ($1.92 billion) for money-laundering and sanctions violations—to name just a few examples—highlights the increasing risks to banks as they conduct their normal business. We now live in an era of international money-laundering controls. The terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, revolutionized the anti-money-laundering (AML) field and brought into stark relief the threat of the movement and disguising of funds destined for the support of terrorism throughout the world, introducing a whole new effort to combat the financing of terrorism (CFT). As a result of the governmental reaction in virtually all countries, banks, non-bank financial institutions and nonfinancial businesses face tougher national and international legal requirements and harsher penalties than ever before. By the same token, the regulators of those businesses, law-enforcement agents and prosecutors also face greater challenges and responsibilities in their work. The discussion of what this means to you will include the economic and social consequences of money laundering; the latest regulatory developments in the U.S., Asia and Europe; challenges in effective AML/CFT implementation; and key lessons learned from recent cases. Presented by the Class of 1992.

The $1B Moldova Bank Fraud et al: How Eastern European Crime Proceeds Are Laundered Into The West
Since 2008, half a trillion dollars has left Russia for Europe and America, with much of it being held through vehicles in the BVI and other offshore jurisdictions. Some of it represents the assets of oligarchs but a significant amount can be linked to narcotics trafficking, tax evasion and money laundering. Investigative journalists in eastern Europe tracked down the details of one such case - a $20 billion international money laundering scheme involving bribed judges in Moldova, organized crime groups, and Russian banks owned by Vladimir Putin's cousin. They will explain how money gets into the West and the state-of-the-art techniques, including the use of offshore structures, that are used to launder criminal proceeds. They will also introduce the 'Investigative Dashboard', a tool they designed to help investigators track these kind of cases. Presented By: DREW SULLIVAN, Editor, Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (Bosnia and Herzegovina) & PAUL RADU, Executive Director, Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (Romania) Recorded on November 23, 2015 during The OffshoreAlert Conference in London at The Grange St. Paul's Hotel. OffshoreAlert is an independent news website founded in 1997 by investigative reporter David Marchant and offers news, documents & intelligence about businesses and individuals operating in Offshore Financial Centers, with an emphasis on fraud investigations. OffshoreAlert also holds conferences in North America and Europe tailored for the offshore world. OffshoreAlert is generally considered to be a leading authority on OFCs and serious financial.

Europe's New Mafias | People & Power
No one paid the two men much attention as they approached the bank. It was around three in the afternoon in a small French town and customers had been coming and going to the cash machine all day. If anyone spared the two a thought, they would probably have assumed they were - just like anyone else - about to withdraw some money. But then, as the men huddled together around the ATM - incidentally making it difficult for passers-by to see what they were doing - one of them opened his jacket and pulled out a rectangular steel panel. He swiftly pressed it into place over the cash machine’s keyboard (that it fitted perfectly was no accident), and then they walked away. A few moments later another customer approached the machine, slid his bank card into the slot as usual, entered his account details via the keyboard and withdrew some cash; as did several other people over the next few hours. What none of them realised, of course, was that the keypad they were using was actually a fake, which while it allowed them to take money from their accounts as normal, also recorded their PIN numbers. It was not until later that evening that a customer noticed something was wrong. One of the two men, who had been watching from a safe distance, came up quickly and offered to help. But the customer left to phone the police. As soon as his back was turned, the two men moved in to dismantled the fake keyboard as rapidly as they has installed it and then left once more. As it turned out, the two men involved in this particular episode had not been as unobserved as they thought, because a hidden CCTV surveillance camera was recording their every move. When examined by the police later on, the footage would be added to a pile of evidence they were accumulating to prosecute a group of people involved in the systematic and industrial scale theft of PIN numbers and bank account details - details that were being used to clone fake bank cards and strip accounts of millions of Euros. What came as no surprise to the police was that the two men were from Eastern Europe. These days many of their suspects are. Though this was just one small incident, it was actually part of a much wider trend of organised crime emanating from gangs in Romania, Georgia, Ukraine, Russia and elsewhere, which over the last decade has been giving law enforcement an increasingly serious headache. These new mafias have their fingerprints on all sorts of criminal activity - from bank card fraud, robberies and extortion to prostitution, arms dealing and money laundering - with most of the proceeds destined for the crime bosses back east. The problem for police in countries such as France, Germany and the UK is that while they might be able to catch and put away some of the gangs' small -time foot soldiers, it is much more difficult to go after the powerful godfathers in Moscow or Kiev or Tbilisi. So what is behind this spread of mafia-style criminal activity from East to West? Who are the bosses and godfathers pulling the strings? And how exactly do they operate? French filmmakers Jerome Pierrat and Barbara Conforti went behind the scenes to find out. They meet police and investigators, gangsters and crime bosses in Georgia, Romania, and the Ukraine, including some of the infamous vory v’zakone’ (which translates to: 'thieves in law’) - a loose association of organised criminals that originated in the gulags or labour camps of the Soviet era. In Georgia they hear how the authorities, increasingly alarmed at the power and influence of the vory in everyday life, managed to take them on and force them out. One of the reasons why Eastern European crime has spread to the West is because of increasingly difficult operating conditions at home. In Craiova, Romania, where the local mafia has made good use of the skills of the country’s unemployed IT technicians to develop sophisticated methods for cloning bank cards, they meet the gang lord who fell out with his fellow godfathers when he killed one of them during a poker game. The film gives a fascinating glimpse into an ever-changing criminal underworld, with its own strange rules, in which people who lie, cheat, steal, manipulate, extort and kill for a living, still subscribe to their own perverse honour code. - Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

In contrast to the vision of American and various other allied representatives -- notably American economist Harry Dexter White -- Lord Keynes intended the IMF as an expansion of the Bank for International Settlements [which is not accountable to any governments: it provides banking services only to central banks], established in 1930 under the guidance of Bank of England governor Montagu Norman and Hitler's future finance minister Hjalmar Schacht. The BIS itself was conceived by family-run "fondi", lending banks with a long tradition of playing both sides against the middle and taking over European ministries and governments by means of usury to use their armies to collect on further usury. In the late 1700s, the Genoese and the Venetian fondi created modern Switzerland as a bank with an army attached. It remains the fondi's stronghold. All of the military, financial and social convulsions which have wracked Latin America, Africa, and later Southeast Asia since WWII have, as their model, a return to the genocidal empire building conditions of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries; and as their objective, a new division of the world into a "new world order", with national boundaries only a masquerade for the actual boundaries of the spheres of influence to be carved up like mafia turf according to which family controls which money laundering/lending operation, debt collection operation, etc.. Banking practices based upon speculation and usury are key to an understanding of modern politics, and underlie all other strategic political factors such as raw materials distribution, industrial development, or cultural and intellectual trends. The fondi exist mainly out of the public spotlight. The evidence of their existence is the misery they leave in their wake. The "fondo" is the collective financial interest of a "family" of the landed aristocracy, or a "family" of the rentier-financier aristocracy. The fondo functions as a private bank; or a syndicate of several fondi may combine forces to create a jointly controlled private bank or insurance company. The characteristic activities of the fondi involve generating income from speculation on gains from the manipulation of commodity prices -- through monopolies -- over some portion of trade in a commodity, including raw materials and their means of transportation. Syndicates of fondi greatly increase their power over society by financing the debt of government. If they are able to establish a relative monopoly of lendable currency, bullion or credit, the syndicate can dictate key policies of governments, including the appointments of government ministries.Thus they control policies on tariffs, taxation, public works, land concessions, special monopolies, and so on.

Lessons from Lehman and the Coming Crash - Docu - 2018
Have we learned the Lessons from Lehman and could we have predicted the Coming Crash? Ten years ago, the crash on Wall Street took us by surprise when Lehman Brothers' bank went bankrupt. The financial crisis that followed this crash on Wall Street was like a chain reaction; a pole dancer with her five mortgages turned out to be connected to the huge gap in the Greek national budget. Is it possible to predict the coming crash? What are the lessons learned from the collapse of Lehman Brothers? Can we predict the coming crash of Wall Street by looking back to the last 10 years and take a lesson from Lehman? A new investigative financial documentary by VPRO Backlight. Original title: Silence before the cra$h Sometimes, it is important to look back in order to predict what we might be heading for. Ten years ago, we were taken by surprise when Lehman Brothers' investment bank went bankrupt. In the followinf months, banks needed saving. Millions of tax payers money was used. Worldwide, banks, villages, cities, and even countries went bankrupt or were hanging by a thread. Few, if any, bankers were convicted. Crypto currencies like bitcoins thrived on the growing suspicion towards banks and governments. Finally, central banks around the world set up buying asset purchasing programmes in order to create cash out of nothing. A strategy to pump money into the financial system, hoping to keep it afloat. What have we learned from this crash and its consequences? Over a period of ten years, VPRO Backlight reported on the snowballing financial crisis. It turned out that a journalist, a former banker and an economist had predicted the 2008 credit crash and are now warning against a new crash. We pay them another visit to find out what they had seen, where many others were blind. If we look hard enough, can we see why we are now in the calm before the next crash? With: Nomi Prins (author & ex banker Goldman Sachs and Lehman Brothers), Ann Petifor (Economist) and Isabella Kaminska (journalist Financial Times) with cameo’s by Jim Rogers (super investor), Roger Ver (bitcoin-evangelist), Joris Luyendijk (journalist) & Yanis Varoufakis (former minister of finance Greece).

European Commission   Enlargement  3 Videos   Enlargement
On 9 November, the Commission adopted its 2010 Enlargement package. It comprised a Strategy paper, the Opinions on the membership applications by Montenegro and Albania and seven Progress Reports on the other candidate countries and potential candidates, including on Kosovo*. On Kosovo*, the conclusion was that, given Kosovo's strengthened commitment to the European agenda and policy reforms, the Commission is committed to launch a visa liberalisation dialogue shortly, to assist Kosovo to put into place the conditions needed for a possible trade agreement with the EU, and to propose the opening to Kosovo's participation in relevant Union programmes, such as ''Europe for Citizens'' and ''Culture''. Ahead of the adoption of the Report, Commissioner Füle stated: "We are as committed as ever to Kosovo's European perspective. This goal is within reach, provided Kosovo continues with vital reforms and engages without delay, constructively and pragmatically, in regional cooperation. I hope today's report will provide a useful roadmap for Kosovo's preparation for its European perspective". In July, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) issued an advisory opinion, which concluded that Kosovo's declaration of independence did not violate general international law or Security Council resolution 1244 (1999). In September, the UN General Assembly adopted a joint resolution tabled by Serbia and co-sponsored by EU Member States as a follow up to the ICJ opinion. The resolution aims at opening the way for a process of dialogue between Pristina and Belgrade to promote cooperation, achieve progress on the path to the European Union and improve the lives of the people. The EU stands ready to facilitate this dialogue. Political criteria Kosovo has made progress as regards the political criteria in a number of important areas. The decentralisation process has advanced significantly. Local elections were held at the end of 2009. Cooperation with the EU rule of law mission (EULEX) has improved. This trend needs to continue. However, the capacity of the public administration remains weak. The judiciary is not functioning effectively. The rule of law remains a serious concern. Efforts to tackle corruption, organised crime and money-laundering need to be strengthened. Decentralisation can only be completed with the participation of local communities. Economic criteria Kosovo has made little progress towards establishing a functioning market economy. Considerable reforms and investments are needed to enable it to cope over the long term with competitive pressure and market forces within the Union. Kosovo's economy continued growing in 2010. The use of the euro, the low levels of external debt and the narrow exports' base have limited the economy's exposure to the economic crisis. The banking sector continued to expand and remained stable and profitable. However, deficiencies in policy formulation and implementation increased the already high uncertainty in the economy. Unemployment remains very high particularly among the young. The weak rule of law, corruption, uncertainty over property rights and high interest rates continue to impact negatively on the business environment and prevent economic development. The informal sector remains an important challenge. EU Legislation Progress is mixed in aligning Kosovo's legislation with European standards. The legal framework has been developed further in the areas of customs, taxation, free movement of goods, statistics, policing and anti-terrorism. Approximation is at an early stage as regards competition, intellectual property, environment, energy, agriculture and food safety, integrated border management and money-laundering. Alignment with European standards remains limited in the areas of public procurement, financial control, drug-trafficking, organised crime and personal data protection.

EU Finance Ministers To Discuss Crypto Regulations In September- Aug 31st Cryptocurrency News
Bitcoin started to look a little bit more positive on Tuesday when we saw it break past $7,000. But on Thursday we saw it fall below $7, 000 again. The price fell lower after reports suggested that Finance Ministers might discuss crypto regulations in Europe on September 7th. European Union Finance ministers are expected to meet in Vienna to discuss the growth of cryptocurrencies and whether they need to be regulated or not. According to a Bloomberg report, a draft note for the meeting says that the Finance ministers will discuss challenges such as lack of transparency and the potential for cryptocurrencies to be used for money laundering, tax evasion and terrorist financing. And the Finance Ministry of Poland recently published a bill to clarify cryptocurrency taxation. The new bill is expected to be reviewed in the third quarter. Let’s see what else is happening in the crypto world, this week TRON held an event to officially launch the Tron Virtual Machine, which is fully compatible with Ethereum . It claims to be faster and has lower costs. This week we saw Tron’s TRX climbing ahead of the launch, but we then saw it start a downward trend once again on August 30th. And also hitting headlines this week is Huobi cryptocurrency exchange as it acquired a controlling stake in Hong- Kong based investment company Patronics. Please remember this is news, not investment advice.

Money laundering
Money laundering is the process whereby the proceeds of crime are transformed into ostensibly legitimate money or other assets. However in a number of legal and regulatory system the term money laundering has become conflated with other forms of financial crime, and sometimes used more generally to include misuse of the financial system (involving things such as securities, digital currencies such as bitcoin, credit cards, and traditional currency), including terrorism financing, tax evasion and evading of international sanctions. Most anti-money laundering laws openly conflate money laundering (which is concerned with source of funds) with terrorism financing (which is concerned with destination of funds) when regulating the financial system. Money obtained from certain crimes, such as extortion, insider trading, drug trafficking, illegal gambling and tax evasion is "dirty". It needs to be cleaned to appear to have derived from non-criminal activities so that banks and other financial institutions will deal with it without suspicion. Money can be laundered by many methods, which vary in complexity and sophistication. This video is targeted to blind users.

EMA2015 - The impact of payment regulatory changes in Europe
Read more on: http://blog.payvision.com/ema2015-the... The 5th Electronic Money Association conference (EMA) took place in October 2015, in Brussels. The bi-annual event facilitates a two-way conversation between regulators and EMA members on the upcoming legislative changes in European Economic Area (EEA), such as the Revised Directives on Payment Services (PSD2) and Fourth Money Laundering Directive (4MLD). The conference is particularly timely because the payments regulatory environment is currently in a state of flux. The upcoming governing changes leave a number of items open to interpretation and debate, and the conference presents the perfect opportunity for PSPs and e-money institutions to voice their concerns. As well as exposure to new legislation and interaction with regulators, attendees are given visibility on the latest trends in the industry. The hottest topics were security and passporting, home-host authority coordination, as well as the practical implementation of PSD2. Balancing security with customer service Regulation is shifting from soft to hard implementation, which can be complicated for alternative PSPs and other financial institutions. The imminent PSD2 and 4MLD will have an impact on how businesses interact with their consumers and other PSPs. It is going to be particularly hard for merchants to strike a balance between security and customer service, bearing in mind the revised directives are to be implemented via a two-step approach. Firstly, in compliance with the EBA Guidelines. Secondly at a later stage, in line with the more stringent requirements such as two-factor authentication, applicable once PSD2 is effective. A regional approach to regulation The EMA also invited speakers from outside the EEA to discuss recent regulatory changes in their local jurisdictions. Financial institutions explained the requirements for setting up business in domestic and overseas authorities, and the policy requirements laid out by regulators for obtaining local licenses. By attaining a local licence, a business is required to be compliant with general local law. While it is necessary for financial businesses to ensure they comply with regulators, and that the system is safe for consumers and merchants, they cannot be in a position where the compliance cost is disproportionate to the value of business in that country. Therefore, obtaining a local licence is just the starting post, not the winning one. We also heard information from Fair Trading NSW Australia about the Murray Financial System Inquiry in Australia, and the very recently announced cap on surcharges, which until now could be up to ten percent of a transaction value. Virtual currency regulatory complexities From a virtual currency financial services perspective, members discussed the fact that existing financial regulation is incredibly complicated to implement. When existing regulation is dropped on to a virtual currency exchange company, a number of requirements become irrelevant or are very troublesome to implement. Such financial companies are lobbying for changes to regulation in accordance to their specific services. Make sure your voice is heard In light of the upcoming regulatory changes, the EMA recommends that PSPs and other e-money service providers enlist knowledgeable consultants, and identify institutions that follow the development of new regulation and introduction of new legislation. Join either a domestic or international industry associations in which you have an opportunity to exchange views with other PSPs, and allow you to more effectively engage with regulators. Most importantly, ensure that your voice can be heard.

Who owns football? - VPRO documentary - 2014
The battle against inequality has started. Not in an Occupy square this time, but on the football field, where supporters massively start to object to their clubs being taken over. A multi millionaire Malaysian, Russian oligarchs and international hedge funds taste defeat. Large football clubs are bought by foreign businessmen, who are only in it for the money and have no emotional tie to football history whatsoever. The biggest European sport is facing an identity crisis. And what do you do when you, as a supporter, have to stand by and watch as your club changes its name or your club colours are changed from red to blue? That's right: you take matters into your own hands as best you can. This protest movement may represent more than just football.

U.S. blocks N. Korea from accessing int'l financial system
美 '北 자금세탁우려국'...북한 금융망 전방위 차단 Looking to tighten the financial noose on Pyongyang,... the United States has finalized a proposal to further isolate North Korea from the international banking system. Our Ji Myung-kil has more. The U.S. Treasury Department has issued a final rule that prohibits U.S. financial institutions from opening or maintaining accounts for North Korean banks. It also requires that they apply additional due diligence measures in order to prevent North Korean financial institutions from gaining improper access to the U.S. financial system. The rule was proposed in June, whereby the Treasury designated North Korea as a primary money laundering concern. Adam Szubin, the acting undersecretary of Treasury for terrorism and financial intelligence, says Pyongyang is using front companies and agents to conduct illicit financial transactions to support the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and to evade international sanctions. The U.S. Treasury had previously used an anti-money laundering provision to target the North's illicit activity like the 2005 blacklisting of Banco Delta Asia... a bank in Macau. Although the measure was seen as the most effective U.S. sanction at the time... the measure was lifted in exchange for cooperation on nuclear issues. Experts say the latest designation could have a greater impact than the Banco Delta Asia sanctions because it designates North Korea as a whole... not just one bank. Ji Myung-kil, Arirang News.

3rd Anti-Cybercrime Forum
Following the success of the 3 previous editions of the Anti-Cybercrime Forum, the Special Investigation Commission (SIC) and the Cybercrime and Intellectual Property Bureau at the Directorate General of the Internal Security Forces, in cooperation with the Middle East and North Africa Financial Action Task Force (MENAFATF) are organizing the 4th Anti-Cybercrime Forum on November 29th in Beirut. The forum takes place on the margins of the 28th MENAFATF plenary that will be held in Beirut under the presidency of Lebanon on 27 and 28 November. The forum aims to mitigate the threats from financial crime, money laundering, terrorist financing and cybercrime. It will comprise discussions between a vast number of international and regional experts from the Public and the Private sectors who will present insights and practical approaches to prevent potential cyber threats in the upcoming years. It will also shed light on the latest financial crime trends and the role that can be played by International Organizations in preventing criminal abuse of the financial system. Moreover, the forum will present the Lebanese roadmap put in place to develop a national cybersecurity strategy and an action plan to face the risks of cyber crimes. This roadmap was set in collaboration with the European Union Commission that shared experiences and best practices from member states and institutions in that regard, and provided support to improve Lebanon’s rating at the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). In addition, as Blockchain and crypto-assets are gaining great momentum, businesses who capitalize on these will benefit from an influx of investment as well as a more diversified economic sector with strong growth prospects. The forum will thus focus on the rise of crypto-assets and their related risks, opportunities and regulatory challenges. Participants will gain insights from the expertise and practical cases presented by representatives of Financial Intelligence Units, financial service institutions, Regulators, Law Enforcement Authorities, Policy-makers and technology experts, who will share their visions on the dynamics shaping the financial sector, and suggest ways to secure a sustainable, safe and successful future.
Links between illicit trade in consumer goods and the funding of terrorist activities are widely acknowledged. Every day, consumers around the world unwittingly contribute to the eco-systems fostering groups hell-bent on attacking and destroying ideologies that uphold civilized societies. The issue and how to tackle it is complex, and requires collaborative efforts and direct action from all quarters, including regulators, industry, the security community, law enforcement, and consumers themselves. What is the scale of the issue? What would be the business recommendations and suggestions for the security community on this issue? Can counter-terrorism tools help in the fight with illegal traders? And as Daesh crumbles, do we foresee new trends in terrorism financing?

Wealthy Chinese Buying Vineyards Around the World
Chinese are buying vineyards around the world. Many high net-worth individuals are investing their money in vineyards. It's actually becoming quite the trend. According to real estate brokers, the interest seems to be increasing among purchasers looking for sprawling lots of raw land and others who are seeking complete, ready-to-go, wine making estates. A vineyard expert at Pacific Union International stated "I would say the Chinese are far and away number one for buyers right now. And after China, I say the biggest demand is Taiwan." Bordeaux, France appears to be the most desired spot for aspiring acreage owners. China has seen a surge in the popularity of wine in recent years - which may be prompting the interest in vineyard ownership amongst its citizens. While the near-term trend may indicate solid growth, longer term, climate change may play a role in this market. A study on projected climate change and the effect it will have on areas able to grow wine has predicted that 85 percent of the land in Europe now being used for vineyards will be unsuitable for growing grapes by the year 2050.
