While the EU takes important steps towards tackling money laundering and tracing the proceeds of corruption, we look at what the UK could do to strengthen itself against similar risks.

This G20 meeting, we call on the UK to lead the anti-corruption agenda and close loopholes in the global financial system to help the world’s poorest.

At least 19 UK firms are under investigation for an alleged conspiracy to launder £12.5 billion of dirty money, The Independent revealed yesterday. These are funds from “major criminals and corrupt officials around the world”.

Unmask the Corrupt launch

What’s the point of stealing money from your country’s health and education budgets if not to enjoy it? It turns out that the UK is a personal favourite for your average corrupt dictator.

Russian sanctions: all eyes on the assets

Today, further economic sanctions on Russia were announced. But what is the value of freezing assets and imposing travel bans as sanctions – and should they be used in fight against corruption too? 

Last night, 13 of the more cultured members of Transparency International UK staff (including me, naturally) went on a little excursion to see Richard Bean’s new play at the National Theatre, Great Britain. Fancy. But it wasn’t exactly non-work related – the production is a “grotesque satire” of the phone hacking scandal which exposed the illegal interception of phones by newspapers within the past decade.

#JournalismIsNotACrime #ButCorruptionIs

Our thoughts are with the Al Jazeera journalists convicted in Egypt yesterday. The media plays an essential role in the global fight against corruption and acts as a public watchdog on abuses of power. But for many journalists around the world, being threatened, intimidated or imprisoned for doing their job is the norm.

News has broken that Rebekah Brooks has been cleared of all charges in the phone-hacking trial, and Andy Coulson was found guilty of conspiring to hack phones. This is an outcome of one of the most significant corruption scandals in recent years – but what next?

“It’s easy to think that corruption happens somewhere over there, carried out by a bunch of greedy despots. The reality is that the engine of corruption exists far beyond the shores of countries like Equatorial Guinea or Nigeria or Turkmenistan. This engine is driven by our international banking system, by the problem of anonymous shell companies, by the secrecy that we have afforded big oil, gas and mining operations and, most of all, by the failure of our politicians to back up their rhetoric.”Charmian Gooch of Global Witness, TED Prize winner 2014.
