Transparency International UK (TI-UK) and the All Party Parliamentary Group on Anti-Corruption (APPG) will be hosting a screening of From Russia with Cash on Tuesday 3 November, 15.00 – 17.00 followed by a panel discussion and Q&A.
There is growing evidence that UK property has become a safe haven for corrupt money stolen from around the world, facilitated by the laws which enable UK property to be owned by secret offshore companies.
As the corrupt make a house a home for their illicit wealth, particularly in London, ordinary people struggle to rent or buy property and local businesses decline. Money meant for schools and hospitals overseas should not end up in London’s million-pound mansions.
From Russia with Cash shows an undercover journalist posing as a Russian government minister, ‘Boris’, to investigate increasing evidence that London’s property boom is being partly fuelled by overseas buyers laundering money.
The investigative documentary, originally aired on Channel 4, highlights how money laundering through London’s property market is facilitated and encouraged, time and time again.
