Jonathan Fisher QC and Anita Clifford travelled to Chisinau, Moldova to speak as experts for the Council of Europe. As part of its ‘Training for Trainers’, Jonathan and Anita spoke extensively on anti-money laundering laws.
Over the two-day event they explored issues including the money laundering cycle, specific vulnerabilities of lawyers in Moldova, the duty to report, customer due diligence and the reconciliation of reporting with professional secrecy. The aim of the training was to enable the lawyers to train their own teams in AML compliance, so Jonathan and Anita used examples and case studies throughout. This event forms part of their work with the Council of Europe as experts on financial crime-related issues.
