EU to tackle money laundering  

The EU needs to create a forum to combat money laundering and other 
organized crime, says the new commissioner for justice and home 

Antonio Vitorino wants to encourage an arena to bring together 
financial authorities and the police to discuss policies and to share 
information. “The dimensions of financial crime and the 
sophistication of the networks that are operating can put democracy 
in danger,” he said. Vitorino will raise the issue of hi-tech money 
laundering at a meeting in Russia of the Group of Eight countries on 
October 19.
