The first edition, Money Laundering, A Handbook for CDD Compliance provides empirical facts of money laundering that forced the world to unite to combat corruption, money laundering and terrorist financing. Authored by Oliver, Master of Laws and Accountant (UK), obtained the foundation of the Handbook from in-depth research supporting the complexity of the society matrix attributing to crimes in the Asia and Southeast Asia regions.

How lawyer Robin defence for not reporting a suspicious transaction? How identity verification for Arumugam s/o Muthu exempted? This handbook provides the answer.
UN instruments and FATF preventive measures compliance are mandatory. Failure to comply undermines the status of the FATF member. For the DNFBP, the penalty will occur. To discharge mandatory compliance, the FATF standards and the application of the principles require guidance and illustration of hypothesis examples of different DNFBP service providers. Also, with the precedent forms and flowcharts to assist the compliance officers.
