Money laundering - a comparative study between the law in Switzerland and in the U.S.A.

By Thierry Gerber

Abstract

In order to help the fight against organised crime, particularly drug dealing, the problem of money laundering has become more significant.The various techniques used by money launderers are also subject of this thesis. Through the many ways utilised to launder money, it shows how difficult it is to pinpoint what action is on the border of legality and what is not.These difficulties become more apparent when precise analysis is made of the law as applied in both Switzerland and the U.S.A.Neither approach has proven successful. On the contrary, the question of constitutionality of many rules becomes relevant. Many authors do not find the application of the laws easy from the point of view of constitutional law.The present thesis suggests to review the present laws and redefine them in a simpler manner which makes them acceptable internationally
