E-Money Laundering  

By Usanee Mongkolporn, The Nation.  

December 01, 1999  

The Thailand Development Research Institute (TDRI) has urged the 
government to closely monitor the new trend of electronic money (E-
money) transactions, which is virtually untraceable and a new channel 
for laundering money.  

Dr Anuchit Anuchitakul, an executive from the Bank of Thailand (BOT), 
said that the government should institute pre-emptive measures to 
counter money laundering using e-money transactions or e-purse.  

On behalf TDRI, Anuchit is researching the subject "e-money 
transaction, monetary policy and money laundering" to provide 
information, for those who are interested in E-money.
