The signatures on the covering letter (strangely undated) sent to Congress are immediately striking: Greenspan, O'Neill and Pitt. The report is dated 31 December 2002 and that is the date it was released. Presumably, then, that is the date that should have been on the letter.

An edited version of an article that first appeared 31 December 2002

The past year has been strange. And the reasons for that strangeness began, at least in the UK and at least in part, in early 2001. At the beginning of 2001, in the UK, we knew that there were going to be several significant changes to the law relating to money laundering and the regulatory framework in which we operated.

Hui Wei-chun, 39, unemployed, was jailed for two years and 10 months, and Cheung Kam-lun, 54, merchant, was jailed for two years and nine months in Hong Kong for their parts in laundering schemes. In mitigation, the court rejected a claim that they had been "entrapped" into committing the offence.

The latest plan to restructure the balance sheets of Japanese banks, overburdened with "non-performing loans," is bound to lead to fraud and corruption, says leading counter-money laundering strategist Nigel Morris-Cotterill, Head, The Anti Money Laundering Network.

This list applies to all financial services businesses operating in the UK and their overseas branches and subsidiaries.

In World Money Laundering Report Vol. 2 No 7, we addressed the question of on line scams. One of the examples we look at was one that said, amongst other things, that we could avoid US taxes legitimately. We do that of course because we are in the UK - but the spammer didn't care about minor details like that - the spammer just wants us to buy something. So, instead of responding to the advert, we set about trying to find out something more about it.

It's almost the last issue of the current volume and of the topics that have recurred throughout Volume 2, one has grabbed - or been the result of - the imagination more than any other - that of Anticipatory Jurisdictions.
