R v A - Money Laundering Conspiracy - Hawala Banking
The men were accused of Arranging and Facilitating the transfer of millions of pounds of unlawful money derived from the commission of criminal activities. The money was sent to foreign jurisdictions to prevent it being traced by UK authorities.
It was also alleged that the men became involved with large drug syndicates to use a legitimate Money Transfer business in attempting to disperse the money.
A lenghty investigation by the National Terrorist Command's Investigation Unit led to these arrests.
