ACFE Sydney – February 2018 Event: What is Hawala?

Tuesday, 13 February 2018 (RSVP by Friday 9 February 2018)

In the last 20 years the global law enforcement response to tackling money laundering has been increasingly technology driven, underpinned by improved legislation and coordinated through international cooperation. In this environment criminal money laundering syndicates have successfully exploited one of the oldest and most low tech money laundering typologies, Hawala. Hawala dealers circumvent international and domestic reporting obligations through an alternative remittance system which operates outside tradition financial institutions and formal remittance structures. Hawala dealers use trusted international networks to balance a vast number of transactions without ever moving any physical currency or conducting electronic funds transfers.


Detective Sergeant Timothy Underhill
