30 June 2022Conflict in Ukraine: HoC report sets out recommendations to tackle illicit finance—LNB News 30/06/2022 39 The House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee has published the second report of session 2022-23, entitled ‘The cost of complacency: illicit finance and the war in Ukraine’. The report welcomes the Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Act 2022 (EC(TE)A 2022), but concludes that the measures do not go far or fast enough and do little to address the fundamental mismatch between the resources of law enforcement agencies and their target. It calls on the government to increase substantially funding and expert resourcing for key law enforcement agencies like the National Crime Agency (NCA) and Serious Fraud Office (SFO), and increase resources at the FCDO’s sanctions unit. It also calls on the government to develop a comprehensive transatlantic partnership to curb kleptocracy and to engage meaningfully with illicit finance as a foreign police issue.
