The book explains the genesis of the current regime, placing it in the international and regional context. It also provides a chapter-by-chapter analysis of the current law, explaining and analysing key concepts; the statutory framework and individual offences; the developing case law; the Suspicious Activity Reporting regime and problems in its implementation, terrorist financing and money laundering; sentencing, civil recovery and confiscation; and jurisdictional issues. They conclude by looking at the practice of those tasked with prosecuting or defending offences by setting out the powers of investigation and prosecution under POCA and SOCPA and analysing the policy of the various prosecuting bodies, and finally looking at the practicalities of defending, particularly in respect of parallel civil and criminal proceedings, funding and Human Rights Act considerations. The authors comprise an expert team of barristers, including Robin Booth, Chair of the Law Society's Money Laundering Task Force and former head of the Fraud Division of the CPS.
