Europol report shines light on euro underground criminal economy


The European Financial and Economic Crime Threat Assessment looks closely at current and emerging threats relating to financial and economic crime. Using insights and case examples from Europol’s dedicated crime centre, this report analyses the threats posed by money laundering, criminal finances and corruption, and how they have evolved as a result of technological and geopolitical changes. The report also examines the role of these crimes in the broader picture of international serious and organised crime, where criminal networks use financial and economic crime as a tool to obscure, and ultimately benefit from, profits made by illegal activities.
