Countering International Drug Trafficking and Illicit Financial Flows in Latin America Part 2
Building upon Part 1 in this series, which laid out the Latin American Drug Trafficking Organization (DTO) landscape, including the DTOs organizations involved, emerging threat landscape and corresponding transport and distribution routes between LatAm, US, and the UK. Part 2, this session, will assess how international illicit financial flows correspond with the supply-chain, transportation, distribution, and drug trafficking routes identified in Part 1. There will be a focused discussion on the emerging money laundering typologies and schemes, such as trade-based money laundering and professional money laundering networks. It will further examine key AFC compliance program considerations to more effectively detect and report DTO illicit activity and evaluate the effectiveness of legal measures in place to counter the trafficking of illicit drugs across the Americas and Europe, including anti-money laundering regulations as well as financial sanctions.
