What is the term “Money Laundering & Seizure/Freezing of bank accounts”
The term of Money Laundering constitutes an illegal practice related to financial transactions, in which someone hides the source of an –illegally obtained- amount of money and at the same time attempts to transform it into a legal source. The activities from which, most commonly, those money come from include drugs, embezzlement, gambling and corruption in general.
