'Crime shouldn't pay' is the adage. But it still does; estimates show that only 1 percent of criminal proceeds are confiscated. In this week's episode of The Suspicious Transaction Report, asset management consultant Aidan Larkin, and host Helena Wood discuss why crime still pays, the barriers to action, and what can be done to ensure that ill-gotten money is returned to society. In the ‘In the News’ segment, CFCS Director Tom Keatinge and Research Analyst Sasha Erskine add their insights.
