Definition of Money Laundering:

A definition of what institutes the offence of money laundering under Bangladesh law is set out in Section-2 (Tha) of the prevention of Money Laundering Act 2002 (Act No. 7 of 2002) Which is reads as follows: Money Laundering means: (Au) Properties acquired or earned directly or indirectly through illegal means; (Au) Illegal transfer, conversion concealment of location or assistance in the above act of the properties acquired or earned directly or indirectly legal or illegal means; Properties has been defined in section 2(Da) of the Act as Properties means movable or immovable Properties of any nature and description. The U.S customs Service, an arm of the Department of the Treasury, provides a lengthy definition of money laundering as the process whereby proceeds, reasonably believed to have been derived from criminal activity, are transported, transferred, transformed, converted or intermingled with legitimate funds for the purpose of concealing or disguising the true nature, source disposition, movement or ownership of these proceeds. The goal of the money laundering process is to make funds derived from, or associated with, illicit activity appear legitimate. Another definition of Money laundering under U.S. law is, the involvement in any one transaction or series of transactions that assists a criminal in keeping, concealing or disposing of proceeds derived from illegal activities. The EU defines it as the conversion or transfer of property knowing that such property is derived from serious crime, for the purpose of concealing or disguising the illicit origin of the property or of assisting any person who is involved in committing such an offence or offences to evade the legal consequences of his action, and the concealment or disguise of the true nature, source, location, disposition, movement, rights with respect to or ownership of property, knowing that such property derived from serious crime.


A concise working definition was adopted by Interpol General Secretariat Assembly in 1995, which defines money laundering as: Any Act or attempted act to conceal or disguise the identity of illegally obtained proceeds so that they appear to have originated from legitimate source. The joint Money Laundering Sterling Group (JMLSG) of the U.K. defines it as the process whereby criminals attempt to hide and disguise the true origin and ownership of the proceeds of their criminal activities, thereby avoiding prosecutions, conviction and confiscation of criminal funds. In lay terms Money Laundering is most often described as the turning of dirty or black money into clean or white money. If undertaken successfully, money laundering criminals to legitimate dirty money by mingling it with clean money, ultimately providing a legitimate cover for the source of their income. Generally, the act of conversion concealment is considered crucial to the laundering process.


Reasons of Money Laundering:

Criminals engage in money laundering form three main reasons: First, Money represents the lifeblood of the organization that engages in criminal conduct for financial gain because it covers operating expenses, replenishes inventories purchases the services of corrupt officials to escape detections and further the interests of the illegal enterprise, and pays for an extravagant lifestyle. To spend money in these ways, criminals must make the money they derived illegally appear legitimate. Second, a trial of money from an offence to criminals can become in criminating evidence. Criminals must obscure or hide the source of their wealth or alternatively disguise the ownership or control to ensure that illicit proceeds are not used to prosecute them. Third, the proceeds from crime often become the target of investigations and seizure. To shied ill-gotten suspicion and protect them from seizure, criminals must conceal their existence or alternatively make them look legitimate.


Impact of money Laundering:

Money Laundering has potentially devastating economic, security and social consequences. Money laundering is a process vital to making crime worthwhile. It provides the fuel for drug dealers, smugglers, terrorists, illegal arms dealers, corrupt public officials, and others to operate and expand their criminal enterprises. This drives up the cost of government due to the need for increased law enforcement and health care expenditures (for example, for treatment of drug addicts) to combat the serious consequences that result. Crime has become increasingly international in scope, and the financial aspects of crime have become more complex due to rapid advances in technology and the globalization of the financial service industry. Impact of Tax and Revenue: Money Laundering diminishes government tax revenue and therefore indirectly harms honest taxpayers. It also makes government tax collection more difficult. This loss of revenue generally means higher tax rates than would normally be case if the untaxed proceeds of crime were legitimate. We also pay more taxes for public works expenditures inflated by corruption. And those of us who pay taxes pay more because of those who evade taxes. Impact of Market price: Money Laundering distorts asset and commodity prices and leads to misallocation of resources. For financial institutions it can lead to an unstable liability base and to unsound asset structures thereby creating risks of monetary instability and even systemic. The loss of credibility and investor confidence that such crises can bring has the potential of destabilizing financial systems, particularly in smaller economics. Impact on Private sector: One of the most serious microeconomic effects of money laundering is felt in the private sector. Money Launderers often use front companies, which comingle the proceeds of illicit activity with legitimate funds, to hide the illgotten gains. These front companies have access to substantial illicit funds, allowing them to subsidize front company products and services at levels well below market rates. This makes it difficult, if impossible, for legitimate business to complete against front companies with subsidized funding, a situations that can result in the crowding out of private sector business by criminal organizations.


Impact on Global Economy: No one knows exactly how much dirty money flows through the worlds financial system every year, but the amounts involved are undoubtedly huge. The international Money has estimated that the magnitude of money laundering is between 2 and 5 % of world gross domestic product, or a least USD 800 billion to USD1.5 trillion. In some countries, these illicit proceeds dwarf government budgets, resulting in a loss of control of economic policy by governments. Indeed, in some cases, the sheer magnitude of the accumulated asset base of laundered proceeds can be used to corner markets- or even small economies. Impact on national economy: Among its other negative socioeconomic effects, money laundering transfers economic power from the market, government, and citizens to criminals. Furthermore, the sheer magnitude of the economic power that accrues to criminals from money laundering has a corrupting effect on all elements of society. Impact on society; The social and political costs of laundered money are also serious as laundered money may be used to corrupt national institutions. Bribing of officials and governments undermines the moral fabric in society, and by weakening collective ethical standards, corrupts our democratic institutions. When money laundering goes unchecked, it encourages the underlying criminal activity from which such money is generated.


Impact of financial Institutions: Nationals cannot afford to have their reputations and financial institutions tarnished by an association with money laundering especially in todays global economy. Money laundering erodes confidence in financial institutions and the underlying criminal activity-fraud, counterfeiting, narcotics trafficking and corruptionweaken the reputation and standing of any financial institution. Actions by banks to prevent money laundering are not only a regulatory requirement, but also an act of self interest. A bank tainted by money laundering accusations from regulators, law enforcement agencies, or the press risk likely prosecution, the loss of their good market reputation, and damaging the reputation of the country. It is very difficult and requires significant resources to rectify a problem that could be prevented with proper anti money laundering controls. It is generally recognized that effective efforts to combat money laundering cannot be carried out without the cooperation of financial institutions, their supervisory authorities and the law enforcement agencies. Accordingly, in order to address the concerns and obligations of these three parties, these guidance Notes were drawn up.

Three basic stages on money laundering are: Placement: The physical disposal of the initial proceeds derived from illegal activity. Layering: Separating illicit proceeds from their source by creating complex layers of financial transactions designed to disguise the audit trail and provide anonymity. Integration: The provision of apparent legitimacy to wealth derived criminally. If the layering process has succeeded, integration schemes place the laundered proceeds back into the economy in such a way that they re-enter the financial system appearing as normal business funds. Placement stage Cash paid into bank (sometimes with staff complicity or mixed with proceeds of legitimate business.) Cash exported. Cash used o buy high value goods, property or business assets. Cash purchase of single premium life insurance or other investment Layering stage Integration stage Sale or switch to other Redemption of contract forms of investment. or switch to other forms of investment.

Finding Recommendation Suggestion for Money Laundering Conclusion


During my internship period at Al- Arafah Islami Bank limited I have observed the system following by the bank. By observing the system I have identified some problem of Al- Arafah Islami Bank limited .The finding are as follows: Less attractive remuneration package and motivation for the employees. Very few initiatives have taken to it known among public through advertisement. Lengthy procedure in handling simple general banking transaction such as issuing of T.T, D.D,P.O, There is no online banking system in the Al- Arafah Islami Bank limited There are many illiterate clients in AIBL. Communication or dealing with customer is enough poor Has not enough strong marketing policy. Promotional activities are poor. Employees of AIBL are not getting enough training facility. There is no customer care section. There is no Islamic banking facility Customer are not enough satisfied by its service Information cell are not enough equipped (i.e. Booklet brochure of services ) Though AIBL using banking software but it is not integrated with all departments Insufficient presence of modern communication equipment Application of modern technology such as computerization is not sufficient. There is no investment section Shortage of officers


Recommendation for Al-Arafah Islami Bank limited. Though conducting this study I have acquired some practical knowledge about banking system and other relevant matters. Now I would like to provide some recommendation, which maybe helpful to promote the performance of Al-Arafah Islami Bank limited. As per earnest observation some suggestions for improvement of the situation are given below:
1. Need to offer more incentive to depositors Al-Arafah Islami Bank

limited. 2. Increase the branch to reach the depositors all over the country 3. Deeply more efficient marketing force. 4. Training facility should be in crease in order to increase the capability of the employee. 5. Need more attention to the customer 6. Information cell need to improve more by equipping related material 7. Atomization /computerization should introduce all over the system. 8. Interior decoration needs more improvisation 9. Established a smartness of the customer service department needs to improve. 10. Proper training system should e conducted at regular interval for the junior level officer. 11. Online banking is very much in todays modern world. I highly recommended launching of such service


Suggestion for Money Laundering:

In order to prevent money maundering, attention should be given following things to be considered besides law enforcing: 1. Only banking system will not achieve expected success. Its necessary to build up economic infrastructures which are helpful for the development of the country. 2. Strong determination should be taken and fruitful measures should be taken to remove corruption from country. For this accountability and transference will ensure and as a result liability will be increase. 3. Everything required for the development of banking system should be done and qualified person should be given duties. In this regard honesty, competencies, sincerity and responsibility should be under consideration. 4. The bad effect of money Laundering should be published through newspaper, radio and other world service. Besides immigrants should be encouraged to send money through legal way. Foreign embassies can play a positive role in this case. 5. The distance of foreign exchange should be reduced. Many people dont want to send money through banking channel for high remittance charge fixed by foreign banks. 6. The advantage of online banking system should be extended and its fruitfulness should be sent to peoples. The distance of bank in town and villages should be lessened and the quality of the service should be developed. 7. In order to prevent money laundering mutual co-operation between governments of different countries can play a significant role. Moreover, International Monitory fund (IMF) can take appropriate measures in this case. 8. Foreign aid to the government sanction money, loan etc. should be used appropriately in appropriate fields. This should be a system for different non-government organizations, foreign agencies for their activities and liabilities.


After all the aspects of money laundering is worldwide and with it powerful, shrewd and dishonest persons are involved in this Act. So these steps are not taken by only central bank and other commercial banks. Actually a combined efforts and sincerity of people in different occupations such as police income tax authority, customs, BDR and civil society is needed and moreover wit the help of responsible and powerful authority of the government and international agency and all the chief of the government can bring expected success.

In Conclusion, I can say that this types of are very essential for a MBA student to take preparation to meet the global competition in the real life business. By this program I have learned about practical banking practice. I have also tried to learn about the theoretical emersion of money laundering.
