ABSTRACT

International Narcotics Control Strategy Report: Volume II: Money Laundering [March 2018]   [open pdf - 2MB]

"As political stability, democracy, and free markets depend on solvent, stable, and honest financial, commercial, and trade systems, the continued development of effective AML regimes consistent with international standards and able to meet evolving challenges is vital. Money laundering facilitates drug trafficking and fuels criminal activity around the world. It is a key tool of drug traffickers, transnational criminal organizations, and terrorist groups, and it contributes to the breakdown of the rule of law, the corruption of public officials, and destabilization of economies. This threat is recognized as a national security priority of the United States in the 2018 National Security Strategy and the 2017 Executive Order 13773, Enforcing Federal Law with Respect to Transnational Criminal Organizations and Preventing International Trafficking. This report is one response to the threat."
