International Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism. Threats and Contrast Tools, February 10, 2015, Rome, Italy

Tuesday, February 10, at the LUISS Guido Carli  (Guido Carli Free International University for Social Studies) (Hall of Columns, Viale Pola 12, Rome) has been held the round table "International Money laundering and Financing of Terrorism, Threats and Contrast Tools" organized by the Foundation Bruno Visentini and AIRA (Italian Anti Money Laundering Association) "Permanent Observatory on Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism", established at the Foundation.

The Observatory - coordinated by Prof. Ranieri Razzante, university professor in Bologna, Consultant and President of the Parliamentary Anti-Mafia Commission for AIRA (which is also a partner of the project) - is an important technical and operational tool, at the service of the civil society and the institutions to prevent and combat international money laundering: a phenomenon that, increasingly now, provides fuel to the criminal economy, and especially to international terrorism; a capillary phenomenon, insidious and chameleontic that can change shape and skin with extraordinary rapidity.

Therefore data, news, studies and continuous monitoring are needed to enable legislators and law enforcement agencies to be in a position to prevent it rather than having to chase it, as frequently happens, with the tragic effects visible to everyone. The money cleverly laundered can become, in the hands of terrorists, weapons, logistical support and media firepower media which unfortunately preludes the real one.

And to these needs and purposes that the Observatory created by the Foundation Bruno Visentini and AIRA will help to provide answers.

After the greetings of the Director General of the LUISS Guido Carli, Giovanni LO Storto and Gustavo Visentini, Scientific Director of the Fondazione Bruno Visentini, we had the contribution of  Franco Roberti, National Anti-Mafia Chief Prosecutor; Giancarlo Capaldo,  Added Prosecutor at the Court of Rome: Claudio Clemente Director of the Financial Intelligence Unit; Enzo Calabria Director of the Italian State Police Academy; Nunzio Antonio Ferla, Director of the Anti-Mafia Investigative Directorate; General B. Giuseppe Magliocco, Commander of the Central Investigation Service against Organized Crime of the Guardia di Finanza (Italian Fiscal and Customs Police); General B.Mario Parente Commander of the Special Operation Group of the Italian Carabinieri Army. The conclusions were made by the Italian government representative Marco Minniti, Under Secretary to the Presidency Council delegated to the Intelligence Services.

In the event participated Mr. Rodolfo Peikov, which was kindly invited as a member of the IISC.
