New Frontier for Bank Secrecy Act Prosecutions: Trade-Based Money Laundering
Authors: William M. Sullivan, Jr., Fabio Leonardi
This alert also was published as a bylined article by Law360 on July 14, 2016.
Since the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, U.S. law enforcement and financial regulatory agencies have focused on disrupting the use of the financial system by terrorist groups, criminal organizations and tax evaders to hide illicit funds. As part of these efforts, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) have been increasingly scrutinizing anti-money laundering (AML) compliance efforts and pursuing domestic and foreign banks for violations of the Bank Secrecy Act. Because of this heightened enforcement environment and due to the tremendous recent growth of trade-based money laundering, financial institutions should expect a surge in government investigations, and potentially prosecutions, for failures to maintain adequate trade-finance AML compliance programs.
