This book brings together the issues surrounding banking secrecy and confiscation of criminal proceeds in offshore financial centres. The book examines the existing legal agreements at the international, regional and national levels and their interaction in the substantive areas of confiscation, anti-money laundering and banking confidentiality laws. The work draws on the insights of criminologists to offer critical insight into the legislative frameworks designed to deal with banking secrecy and confiscation in offshore financial centres. It goes on to offer suggestions for measures that may be taken by major economies to circumvent the lack of cooperation by offshore financial centres as intolerance towards money laundering grows in light of recent political and economic events.
