BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS – Lawmakers in St. Kitts and Nevis are expected to approve a minor amendment to the Proceeds of Crime Act making money laundering an extraditable offence. Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas will seek legislative approval on Thursday to ensure that St. Kitts and Nevis is not a safe haven for persons who perpetuate offences of this type.
The Proceeds of Crime (Amendment) No. 3 Bill, 2008 is one of two bills in the name of the Minister of Finance.
The other is the Money Services Business Bill, 2008, which was given its first reading on June 18th.
Not Protected by Influence
As I see it, this legislation will allow the extradition of wealthy persons to be tried in other countries, where they might have less influence.
