Money laundering cases in Fiji
October 23, 2012 4:13 am
No one can say that money laundering isn’t prevalent in Fiji says former high court judge Nazhat Shameem in her presentation to Police Officers at a workshop in Nadi today.
The Fiji Financial Intelligence Unit has confirmed 23 cases of money laundering in Fiji so far.
Shameem says money laundering can be described as hiding an illegal origin of money and is very common in Fiji.
She says if people are getting away with money laundering it could be due to the lack of training in our part on how to look for evidence.
The Financial Intelligence Unit is holding a two day workshop specifically for Police officers in the western division.
