Financial crime specialists Rahman Ravelli to present at international financial crime conference

Author: Azizur Rahman  16 April 2021

Posted in : Anti-Money Laundering .

Rahman Ravelli is to be a presenter at a European conference assessing the prosecution of financial crime.

They will present the webinar, “The Long Arm of the Law: Why Aren’t More People Prosecuted for Financial Crime?’’, which is being held from 3.55pm to 4.45pm BST on Tuesday, 18 May.

The event has been arranged by ACAMS, the organisation for financial crime specialists. It has been devised to analyse how financial crime cases are brought to court and examine the factors that make it difficult to obtain convictions.

The webinar will also examine the Criminal Law Directive and the possible influence on prosecutions of increasing public-private collaboration.

Other matters to be discussed include:

  • Barriers to information sharing and the restrictions they place on the ability to gather evidence for criminal prosecutions.
  • Resource provision within law enforcement agencies and financial intelligence units (FIUs).
  • How to ensure law enforcement agencies and FIUs have enough resources to conduct thorough criminal investigations.
  • The role and treatment of whistle-blowers in prosecutions

Dr. Branislav Hock, University of Portsmouth’s Senior Lecturer in Economic Crime, will moderate the event. Sara Ekstrand, Senior Legal Counsel at the Swedish Bankers’ Association, and Ilze Znotina, head of Latvia’s financial intelligence unit, will co-present with Rahman Ravelli.
