Abstract: The first two chapters focus on U.S. domestic and international responses to the crime of money laundering. The third chapter discusses Federal statutes -- the Bank Secrecy Act of 1970, Money Laundering Control Act of 1986, Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, Crime Control Act of 1990, and the Annunzio-Wylie Anti-Money Laundering legislation of 1992 -- that constitute the legal framework for the prohibition of money laundering and the forfeiture of assets. The International Organizations chapters discuss the contributions of many global agencies including, inter alia, the Organization of American States; the Council of Europe; Basle Committee on Banking, Regulation, and Supervisory Practices; United Nations; and Caribbean Drug Money Laundering Conference, to the creation of an evolving international legal regime. The chapters on individual countries provide background information on narcotics trafficking, money laundering, and forfeiture. The final section consists of international treaties covering these areas.
