SRA Publishes Warning Notices on Anti Money Laundering.
The SRA has published two warning notices on anti-money laundering. The first reminds the profession of obligations around potential money laundering activity, and how to recognise suspicious transactions. The second carries further details on how to make suspicious activity reports (SARs) to the National Crime Agency, should a solicitor come across potential attempted money laundering.
