The European Parliament's special committee on organised crime, corruption and money laundering has voted to adopt an interim report which includes recommendations on actions and initiatives to be taken to combat these offences. The report calls for the
financial sector to:
- determine which IT tools might be used to ensure the traceability of financial flows;
- ascertain criminal activity and beneficial owners; and
- lay down procedures for reporting offences.
The European Parliament is due to vote on the report in June 2013.
