Report Launch: Transparency International shows luxury goods …

New report shows urgent action needed to keep corrupt cash out of luxury goods market

Issued by Transparency International Secretariat

In time for the first anniversary of the release of the Panama Papers, Transparency International will publish on 3 April a report exposing how luxury goods dealers rarely perform adequate due diligence, allowing corrupt customers to spend their stolen wealth on luxury goods with few, if any, questions asked.

In Tainted treasures: Money laundering risks in luxury markets Transparency International analyses the legislative and enforcement gaps which allow large-scale money laundering to occur in the luxury goods sector. It finds widespread risks of money being laundered, and limited measures in place to address those risks.
