Internet financial services is a rapidly changing field. The new technologies available to facilitate criminal activities make it imperative that more sophisticated means of combating money laundering are developed. This manual addresses issues such as; the interface with the parallel economy; grand corruption and diverted aid funds; fiscal offences and exchange control violations. Additionally, it reviews anti-money laundering developments in the four strategic geographical areas of influence within the Commonwealth - Africa, Australia, the Caribbean and the UK. It examines the developments in international standards since 1996 in various fora, for example the OECD convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials and the OECD re unfair tax competition.
