JERSEY CONSULTING ON THE INTRODUCTION OF A FAILURE-TO-PREVENT MONEY LAUNDERING AND TERRORIST FINANCING OFFENCE INTO THE PROCEEDS OF CRIME (JERSEY) LAW 

On 28 January, the Government of Jersey issued a news release advising of a consultation on this proposed new offence.  It would address some issues around the “Identification Doctrine” and thus enable a more effective attribution of criminal liability to legal entities. This would enhance the overall effectiveness and dissuasiveness of the sanctions available to the Royal Court.
