Bar Council issues revised money laundering guidance

The Bar Council has issued new guidance to draw barristers’ attention to their obligations in relation to countering money laundering and terrorist financing, and to make practical suggestions as to how to deal with it.

The guidance, which runs to some 57 pages, is designed to make barristers more alert to signs of money laundering and terrorist financing and to provide an overview of the legal framework, the requirements of Customer Due Diligence, provide guidance on reporting suspicions and highlight some of the things that should set alarm bells ringing.

The guidance can be downloaded fro the Bar Council web site at www.barcouncil.org.uk/media/412333/money_laundering_and_terrorist_financing.pdf
