Significant volumes of natural resources are illegally harvested and their proceeds laundered in the Asia-Pacific region, fostering corruption and undermining environmental governance. This book looks at ways to tackle illegal fishing and logging in the region by the use of cooperative legal measures, particularly anti-money laundering and confiscation of proceeds techniques.
The contributors to this volume cover themes including: the nature of transnational environmental crime; patterns in laundering of illicit fish and forest products; networks for distribution of illicit products; weaknesses in current systems for assurance of the legality of products; the role of criminal laws in addressing these products as proceeds of crime; and international legal cooperation to enforce anti-money laundering laws in relation to illicit products. In considering these topics the book explores how the use of anti-money laundering measures and the seizure of criminal proceeds can be used as innovative policy options in order to combat transnational fishery and forestry crimes.
