What now for the EU ?

For legit hauliers, a tenner a day would seem reasonable.
As for caravans arriving from ROI, £10,000 per vehicle would seem a fair price of entry.
Cash only, trackers fitted and all occupants photographed, fingerprinted and DNA'd.
Not forgetting signing a permanently deported and barred from future entry for life form following even the most minor infraction.
Are you some sort of wishy washy SJW?
 
Couldn't be further from the truth.

Banks for run with compliance "front and centre" these days, rather than being a box ticking exercise. Anything that does get through won't be the result of banks not trying. There is no "blind eye", at least for "first world" banks.....but I can't vouch for the "Panamanian People's Bank & Credit Union".

Are you saying the finCEN scandal is all a lie?

UK bank shares have taken a hit after some of the world's largest lenders were accused of allowing criminals to launder dirty money. Over 2,100 suspicious activity reports (SARs) covering more than $2trn (£1.5trn) in transactions were leaked to BuzzFeed News and shared with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).

These reports, and more than 17,600 other records obtained by the ICIJ, allegedly show how senior banking officials allowed fraudsters to move money between accounts in the knowledge that the funds were being generated or used criminally.
 
There are more money woes on the way, looks like they are still short of a few bob.


Yep, the desperation for money is getting very obvious.

She basically said that the Court was incompetent by not understanding points of law

Vestager said the EU General Court "made a number of errors of law" when annulling her 2016 decision ordering Ireland to recover €13 billion in unpaid taxes from Apple.


Will she get sacked or resign when the ECJ hand her ARRSE on a plate ?
 
Will Switzerland deliver another kick in the swingers to the EU tomorrow ?

Swiss voters will decide on Sunday whether to abandon their free movement of people agreement with the EU.

Supporters say the move will allow Switzerland to control its borders and select only the immigrants it wants.
Opponents argue it will plunge a healthy economy into recession, and deprive hundreds of thousands of Swiss citizens of their freedom to live and work across Europe.

The justice minister says that would create a situation "worse than Brexit".


Shades of Project Fear.

I'm saying that whoever wrote the piece has zero understanding of the legal environment in which suspicious activity reports (SARs) are made.

Put simply, once a report is submitted, it is a criminal offence (five years in prison, unlimited fine) for any person to take any action that would act to tip-off the subject of the SRA. It would predjudice the FinCEN investigation into the suspicious transaction.

What do you think would happen if their funds were quarantined and their account closed? Do you think that might constitute a tip-off?

It's a beat-up non-story. The real story should be "Banks report suspicious transactions and then follow the law".

FFS.

Or alternatively the law is an ass if it is designed to facilitate money laundering as proved by finCEN

It actually works quite well.

The activity is reported, the regulatory investigators do their thing. People get arrested.

The "ass(es) in the room" are those that leaked the reports and those who publish them, particularly the BBC. As said above, they may well be committing a crime in making the content public, insofar as the SARs in question may be the subject of ongoing regulatory investigations.

Nothing is "designed to facilitate money laundering", except, perhaps, the Irish corporate tax system.

And the London property market, well that and the amount of money banks earn from turning a blind eye to money laundering
 
I didn't have you pegged as being that f'ing stupid.

Good to see you're not triggered, are you going to bash the mong buttons again to prove how not triggered you are?

That doesn't happen to the EU elite for minor infractions, only applies to minions.

Of course there are always exceptions, ask Big Phill, mind it was quite a biggy for a head honcho of the bloc to ignore the rules in the middle of a pandemic...

The incompetence is any court that doesn't see things as the Commission sees them... I would imagine the court will have political pressure applied in the background and the irish better brace themselves.

the ECJ is a political weapon of the EU.
