By its very nature, money laundering is an illegal activity carried out by criminals which occurs outside of the normal range of economic and financial statistics. The report estimates that in 2009, criminal proceeds amounted to 3.6% of global GDP, with 2.7% (or USD 1.6 trillion) being laundered.
Money laundering is frequently linked with other transnational crimes such as Terrorism, human trafficking, wildlife trafficking and other global crimes. The weight of regulating, investigating and prosecuting money laundering cases rests largely with Government law enforcement bodies and regulators. AGA-Africa Programme provides training for these key anti money laundering actors.
