    Money Laundering | Metropolitan Police Take No Further Action Against Money Services Bureau

    Kangs Solicitors have been representing a Money Services Bureau (‘MSB’), which trades from a number of branches across London, following the execution by the Metropolitan Police of search warrants at such premises, simultaneously with raids at the premises of eighteen other companies, in relation to allegations of money laundering millions of pounds.

    Frances Murray explains the successful involvement of Kangs Solicitors.

    Police Allegations | Kangs Financial Investigation Solicitors

    The Police alleged that:

    • HMRC records indicated that the company was trading at a loss
    • the trading branches were not located in traditionally affluent areas
    • there was no economically viable reason for the business to trade
    • there was a suspicion of money laundering connected to an investigation undertaken by the Spanish Anti Money Laundering Agency  which had discovered €200 million of drug trafficking money.

    How We Assisted Our Client | Kangs Financial Crime Investigation Team

    In response to the allegations we:

    • discussed at length with our client the nature of the allegations, the nature of its trade, and the basis of the allegations with which it was confronted
    • prepared detailed witness statements by the Chief Executive Officer of the company in which the legitimacy of each transaction subject to scrutiny by the Police was evidenced and proven
    • conducted a thorough and detailed forensic analysis of the company records, the centralised database and identification checks of all of the company’s customers.

    A Successful Result | Kangs Financial Investigation Solicitors

    As a result of our detailed attention to the company’s trading position and preparation of a full response to the allegations faced the Metropolitan Police decided to take no further action against our client company.

    Naturally, our client was delighted with the outcome given that its good reputation had been preserved.
