  • The first book to cover comprehensively the issue of cyber laundering
  • Provides insight into how popular everyday technologies are being exploited for laundering money with real-life examples
  • Offers innovate solutions to cyber laundering
  • Delves into a very grey area of law, daring yet untreated paths, scouring undiscovered territories and in depth devising how laws can be used to combat the growing dilemma of cyber laundering

This volume deals with the very novel issue of cyber laundering. The book investigates the problem of cyber laundering legally, and sets out why it is of a grave legal concern locally and internationally. The book looks at the current state of laws and how they do not fully come to grips with the problem. As a growing practice in these modern times, and manifesting through technological innovations, cyber laundering is the birth child of money laundering and cybercrime. It concerns how the internet is used for 'washing' illicit proceeds of crime. In addition to exploring the meaning and ambits of the problem with concrete real-life examples, more importantly, a substantial part of the work innovates ways in which the dilemma can be curbed legally.

This volume delves into a very grey area of law, daring a yet unthreaded territory, and scouring undiscovered paths where money laundering, cybercrime, information technology and international law converge.  In addition to unearthing such complexity, the hallmark of this book is in the innovative solutions and dynamic remedies it postulates.
