Common Law Legal Systems Model Legislative Provisions on Money Laundering, Terrorism Financing, Preventive Measures and Proceeds of Crime

By Commonwealth Secretariat

Corruption undermines the rule of law, good governance, and sustainable growth and development. Most countries have prohibited all forms of corruption, yet corruption persists due largely to a lack of appropriate strategies and structures to inhibit it. Such strategies include effective and comprehensive legal frameworks to prevent, punish and take the profit out of corruption. The Common Law Legal Systems Model Legislative Provisions aims to enable Commonwealth countries to evaluate measures that can be incorporated into domestic law to prevent, detect, and effectively sanction money laundering and terrorism financing and to recover the proceeds of crime.
