Tax and criminal law

Tax and criminal law becomes more and more intertwined. The Dutch supreme court (Hoge Raad) decided in 2009 that a criminal act is being performed, when somebody accepts payments from a client – and he/of she could (or should) have know that the money was obtained by not paying taxes in the Netherlands. The AML /CFT legislation focusses on financial structures – and the government or Central Banks often fully discard the legal situation; for us as attorneys this trend is an abomination. But we assist and provide legal support agressively on behalf of our clients.
