On 19th July, FATF published a new paper which identifies the challenges that judges and prosecutors face in investigating and prosecuting money laundering and terrorist financing, and in recovering the proceeds of crime.  It highlights useful elements and best practices in the conduct of investigations, prosecutions, convictions and confiscation.   Given the transnational nature of many criminal networks, the paper also highlights the need for international co-operation.   To prepare the paper, FATF, in a joint effort with the FATF-style regional bodies, and other international organisations, gathered knowledge about experiences, challenges and best practices from over 400 judges and prosecutors from around the world.
