  1. Money laundering control in the Caribbean

    Ali, Shazeeda A.
    London ; New York : Kluwer Law International, c2003.

    It has long been believed that the most effective way to immobilise organised criminal activity lies in blocking the channels that allow illegally-obtained assets to enter the economic mainstream. Yet even as international law enforcement co-operation in this vital endeavour becomes ever more focused, the bewildering domain of criminal money laundering techniques remains elusive. The "gross national product" of international crime still exceeds that of many nations. A main aim of this new book is to marry what we know of laundering channels and methods on the one hand and existing legal regimes (both preventive and reactive) on the other. Although major victories on the side of law and order are not numerous so far, the author clearly demonstrates that progress is being made in certain areas and that the overall thrust of international law and cooperation in the field is growing stronger. She goes on to identify a number of linkages between criminal necessities and potential legal measures that are likely to bear fruit. It is the author's belief that the insights gained by this in-depth comparison will shed light on the paths to be followed by law enforcement agents and judicial tribunals as they pursue their goal of stemming the flow of laundered illegal money into the world's economies.

  2. Risky business : perspectives on corporate misconduct

    Kingston ; Miami : Caribbean Law Publishing Company, 2010.

    The international financial crisis which began in August 2007 brought into sharp focus the regulation of the financial services industry. However, even before then, the quest to control money-laundering, Executive excesses, terrorist FINANCING and financial crime generally, had resulted in the upsurge of a new regulatory environment worldwide. In Risky Business, the Contributors, bringing both expertise and experience, present different perspectives on the new regulatory practices and offer guidance on the role of governance in the scheme of regulatory reform. Divided into two parts: International Perspectives and Jamaican Perspectives, the book firstly focuses on the wider global regulatory context, while the second part examines the Jamaican situation and the initiatives taken there primarily through the passage and implementation of the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA). While of particular interest to scholars and practitioners of financial regulation, company and commercial law, and comparative law, the easy and accessible presentations of the contributions in Risky Business will also enlighten the general reader interested in the financial services industry anywhere in the world.
