Anti-money laundering

In Aruba we have new laws regarding anti-money laundering (AML /CFT). As of June 2011 Aruba is one of the leading countries that complies fully with the FATF legislation. As part of our international legal activitities we provide legal councel to our clients in the field of client-acceptance, checks of legal documents and legislation of passport, et cetera. The Dutch supreme court (Hoge Raad) decided in 2009 that the definition of money-laundering (and the criminal charge of this fact) is broad. If you assist in /or do business with a person that did not pay his or her taxes, and you could (or should) have known this fact, then you are part of the criminal act of money-laundering. In these situations we assist and provide legal support.
