In this issue:
* US money laundering case puts company in the dock
A new case in the USA has emphasised the impact of counter-money laundering laws on the wider commercial arena and demonstrating that it's not just financial sector businesses that need to pay attention to the risks of money laundering.
* NZ: Green Party bring money laundering into mainstream politics
New Zealand's Green Party has raised the profile of the issue of money laundering by drawing links between two persons accused of laundering and SkyCity, a casino.
* Pakistan: Judges' Conference declares that money laundering laws must be brought up to international standards
At the International Judicial Conference 2012 held in Islamabad in April 2012, Pakistan's Chief Justice, Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, read the closing declaration. He pulled no punches
* Uganda: new Money Laundering Bill
At last, Uganda is to get a law with the most important elements, if it passes through parliament.
* Canada's Law
Canada's first law to combat money laundering, The Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) Act, was passed in the 1990s and amended in 2001 when it was renamed The Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act (commonly abbreviated, if that term is strictly appropriate, to PCMLTFA) and again in 2006.
* The terrorists you've probably not heard of
Jund al-Khilafah is an Islamist extremist group that even the USA hasn't got around to banning. Perhaps more attention should be paid to it.
