Jonathan Fisher QC featured on Radio 4 ‘File on 4: Dirty Money UK’ and ‘World at One’

On 6 October 2015 Jonathan Fisher QC featured as a legal expert on ‘Dirty Money UK’, a documentary exploring the rise of the UK as a money laundering hub which aired as part of BBC Radio 4’s award-winning ‘File on 4’ investigative current affairs series.

The documentary focused on the laundering of money from developing European countries through UK company service providers or ‘shell companies’. On the legal obligations of UK corporate service providers, Jonathan commented that “the whole process is predicated on risk assessment therefore the amount of due diligence will be variable according to the factual circumstances of each case,” and considered that there is a clear onus on corporate service providers to undertake thorough due diligence in order to guard against money laundering.

Jonathan’s comments also featured on ‘World at One’.
