Dirty Laundry, Letter to the Editor – City A.M.

Jonathan Fisher QC’s letter to the editor, ‘Dirty Laundry’, appeared in the 26 January 2018 copy of City A.M. Jonathan argued for a “wholesale review” of the present anti-money laundering system. He noted the ineffectiveness of the present system by reference to recent statistics published by the National Crime Agency and the disproportionate and burdensome effect the laws have on professional service providers. Jonathan proposed that “[t]he government should grab the opportunity in the post-Brexit era to completely revamp the UK’s anti-money laundering laws.”
