Europe: From AML Obligations to Money Laundering as a Criminal Offense in the EU

All you ever wanted to know - but never dared to ask - about (anti) money laundering in the EU, in less than 60 minutes !

The European Union has zero tolerance for illicit money and is determined to ensure that criminals do not benefit from the proceeds of their illicit activities. To achieve such objective, the European Union has long decided to fight money laundering both preventively and repressively. This webinar will address in very didactic and understandable terms the current EU legal framework applicable, on the one hand, to the prevention of money laundering (namely the so-called anti-money laundering or 'AML' obligations, which apply to selected persons/entities) and, on the other hand, to the repression of money laundering (namely the existence of criminal offenses penalizing acts of money laundering).
