In recent times there had been a series of money laundering scandals implicating some of the largest and reputed banks across the European Union, including Sweden.
The widespread and colossal sums of dirty money laundered in the EU banking market have once again raised the question of the adequacy of the EU legal and supervisory framework to combat financial crimes. The issues to be discussed is whether the EU should shift its traditional approach to combat money laundering based on minimum harmonization and home country control system. It will be argued that the EU should adopt a new legal approach combined with a more centralized command structure to effectively combat money laundering and terrorist financing.
