Annotation: This is a guide to assist debriefers in formulating questions concerning the financial aspects of international and domestic drug trafficking.
Abstract: The booklet is intended as a reference guide to supplement the debriefers’ skills and knowledge. Responses to these questions can provide tactical, operational and strategic intelligence for drug law enforcement officials. It is not expected that every person interviewed - whether defendant, suspect or witness - can supply information on all the questions posed in the guide. Part One of the guide presents questions concerning payment for drugs supplied to the organization; the handling of proceeds after drugs have been distributed; and money movement methods. Part Two is designed to identify assets of the money laundering organization and its members. Part Three lists Federal Government agencies that are prepared to provide assistance in the event a subject’s answers in the other two parts indicate technical or extensive knowledge of financial transactions or money laundering.
