Departments of Justice, Treasury, and Homeland Security Unveil New Anti-Money Laundering Initiative

The U.S. Departments of Justice, Treasury and Homeland Security announced a joint National Money Laundering Strategy in a May 2007 report detailing continued efforts to dismantle money laundering and terrorist financing networks and bring these criminals to justice.

“The 2007 National Money Laundering Strategy is a direct result of close cooperation by the Departments of Justice, Treasury and Homeland Security, along with our foreign counterparts, and signifies our collective commitment to fight money laundering,” said Assistant Attorney General Alice S. Fisher of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “Implementation of this strategy will greatly assist in efforts to seize and forfeit millions in illegal proceeds that flow through the international financial system.”
