Unexplained wealth orders an “essential tool”

by Steve Beasant on 10 October, 2018

Responding as details of the first unexplained wealth order are revealed Liberal Democrat Leader Vince Cable said:

“Unexplained wealth orders are an essential new tool in the fight against corruption, and I am pleased to see that they are actually being used. Our country must no longer be seen as a safe place to launder dirty money.

“But this must only be the start. The Government has been extremely slow in using these against the cronies of President Putin. Ministers must go further and faster to crack down on the illegal wealth held by Putin’s inner circle in the UK, as part of a robust response to the outrage committed in Salisbury.”
