Serious Organised Crime Agency - Annual Threat Assessment Report

The Serious Organised Crime Agency, SOCA has released its annual threat assessment.

There have not been any significant changes to threat levels from previous assessments. However the risks of mortgage fraud and identity fraud remain key issues for solicitors.

A new section on international money flows also highlights a number of higher risk jurisdictions through which funds may be laundered, including:

  • UAE
  • Far East and South East Asia
  • Spain

Firms dealing with funds being transferred through those countries should be aware of the increased risks of laundering and make sure they understand why the client needs the funds to be dealt with in that way.

A full copy of the report may be found at http://www.soca.gov.uk/assessPublications/downloads/2009-10_UKTA_NPM.pdf
