Sample text

Indeed, there is strong evidence that a good chunk of the UK’s GBP 133bn of hidden capital inflows is related to Russia. Hidden inflows have been marginally supportive of GBP in recent years, and are another factor behind the UK’s large current account deficit. (Source: Dark matter: the hidden capital flows that drive G10 exchange rates. Deutsche Bank Market Research Report, 2015) You could relate such an article to a ‘problem with words’ as opposed to ‘lies’ as one cannot help but detect a political agenda by the authors in the above statement.

This section will therefore address money laundering succinctly and make connections with fraud (as the underpinning crime). For example, an ex‐MEP for a British political party was jailed for two years for expenses fraud. The prosecution had sought to charge him not only with false accounting but also with ‘using criminal property’. His lawyers argued for dismissal of this second charge on the grounds that it would merely complicate the case for the jury, which required the prosecution to prove the offence of false accounting anyway.

But capital flight often also goes hand in hand with international money laundering. Therefore, a reasoned response or restatement of that extract could be: The UK is the money laundering capital of the world, with laughably weak money laundering controls, the ones responsible for controls and regulation being too ready to avert their eyes to billions in illicit revenues pouring into the country, so long as it pours into the country. Ably indulged by non‐interested UK enforcement authorities, the point is suitably demonstrated by sporadic enforcement against money laundering that is too disconnected from the law itself.
