Keywords:commercial crimes, commercial corruption, international financial crime, money laundering prevention
AbstractIn this article Ejike Ekwueme and Professor Mahmood Bagheri examine the linkage between commercial corruption and money laundering, looking particularly at the adequacy of the responses in place to tackle the threat presented by money laundering. These include "soft laws" established through FATF (Financial Action Taskforce) and the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) and convention-based measures like UNCAC 2003 and ICC initiatives.
