IRELAND: GANGLAND CRIMINALS ‘STREETWISE BUT NOT EDUCATED’, SAYS CAB CHIEF

The Irish Times on 23rd September carried an article including an interview with the head of the Criminal Assets Bureau.  It is said that Irish organised crime gangs have become more savvy in disguising their investments and money laundering but they are still being undone by the need to flaunt their wealth in their home communities.  It is said that some 345 assets profilers have been trained to spot the trappings of unexplained wealth in their areas and feed that information back to CAB headquarters in Dublin for review.   Of those profilers, 318 are in the Garda and 27 others are Revenue or are social welfare officials.
