AML Conversations: The Widespread Use of Antiquities to Commit Terrorist Acts and How the AML Community Can Help

By AML RightSource | August 14, 2018
Welcome to this episode of our podcast series, AML Conversations. In this edition of AML Conversations, AML RightSource Vice Chairman, John Byrne, sat down with the founder of the Antiquities Coalition. The Antiquities Coalition is a nonprofit organization created roughly four years ago to stop the use of stolen antiquities as terrorist financing tools for extremist organizations, a very compelling part of anti-terrorist financing. The Antiquities Coalition conducts excellent advocacy and awareness work dealing with the need for countries around the world to create relevant laws and regulations to address stolen antiquities and their use as a tool to commit horrific crimes.

Tell Her (or Him) No*

By John Byrne | August 7, 2018
Tell Her (or Him) No* Buying or Selling Antiquities Can Assist Terrorism After so many years of following the AML community and being a part of that great group, it is hard to surprise me on ways in which illicit funds can move to support a wide array of financial crime.

“Get Together”*

By John Byrne | July 20, 2018
"Get Together"* A Call for Partnership to Battle Human Trafficking Last week I was able to attend the roll-out of a new report by the leader in anti-human trafficking, Polaris. The report, “On-Ramps, Intersections, and Exit Routes: A Roadmap for Systems and Industries to Prevent and Disrupt Human Trafficking” is the sequel to their last report on trafficking typologies. The new report, according to CEO Bradley Myles, covers the intersections of the previous posted typologies. Myles offered that there have been great strides in the efforts of the private sector over the past few years but as this new information clearly shows, there are still many unwitting partners in both the private and public sectors that enable trafficking to be still profitable and possible. He is right of course, but I would add that the dramatic proactive work of the financial sector in the AML community is not as well-known beyond the folks of Polaris.
