NCA 2018 NATIONAL STRATEGIC ASSESSMENT (NSA)

On 13th May, NCA in the UK published its NSA which draws intelligence from UK law enforcement, government departments, the intelligence community and the private and voluntary sectors.  The assessment provides evidence that the scale and complexity of organised crime continues to grow despite notable operational successes – reinforcing the findings from the National Security Capability Review, recently published by the National Security Advisor. For example, the NSA says that money laundering potentially running to hundreds of billions of pounds impacts the UK annually, with a significant threat being posed by the criminal exploitation of accounting and legal professionals involved with trust and company provision and the UK is a prime destination for corrupt foreign politically exposed persons (PEP) to launder the proceeds of corruption, particularly those from Russia, Nigeria and Pakistan.
