Crime won’t pay
BARBADOS IS GOING to make it as tough as possible for people to benefit from the proceeds of crime.
Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite gave this commitment today when he addressed a workshop at the Supreme Court Complex in Bridgetown on “Countering Terrorism and Its Financing”.
Brathwaite told the participants, including police officers, immigration officials, representatives of the Financial Intelligence Unit and Central Bank of Barbados employees, that Barbados would “do all” within its power to stop people from using money derived from criminal activity.
He underscored the importance of training, saying that legislation aimed at countering crime would be ineffective unless people were trained to work with the systems set up. (TY)
