In Class 11, we finished our discussion of Magnitsky Sanctions as applied by the U.S. government and as adopted by several other countries. We began a discussion of money laundering, including what it is, how it is related to public corruption, and intergovernmental anti-money laundering (AML) collaboration. We also briefly discussed the deferred prosecution agreement entered into by the U.S. government and HSBC Bank, which is featured in the ABC News and PBS News Hour video clips below.
