London and the Criminal Services Industry

    Monday 22 October 2012
    Room A130, City University London

    Is there a reason why so many Eastern European and Central Asian organised crime figures and corrupt politicians call London their second home?

    Could it be for the good weather and fine English cuisine? Or maybe it’s because London is the world headquarters of what the Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) calls the “criminal services industry”: the law firms, hedge funds, banks, registration agents and business intelligence firms that service the corrupt and make laundering money and evading taxes so profitable and easy.

    Drew Sullivan, the editor of OCCRP will be at City University on 22 October, 6.30-8.30pm to discuss this industry and how it is helping to destroy developing countries. He will talk about how to cooperate with reporters in other countries to track down and expose the criminal services industry.
