Financial Crime over the last
Financial Crime over the last 30 years has increasingly become a concern to governments throughout the world. This concern arises from a variety of issues because the impact of financial crimes varies in different contexts. It is today widely recognised that the prevalence of economically motivated crime in many societies is a substantial threat to the development of economies and their stability.
