ISLP and Bright Line Law Deliver Training Workshop for Albanian Judges and Prosecutors

In collaboration with ISLP,  Jonathan Fisher QC, Lead Counsel, and Anita Clifford, Senior Associate, of The White Collar Crime Centre at Bright Line Law, travelled from London to Tirana to deliver a two-day training workshop at the Albanian Magistrates School for  Albanian judges and prosecutors on the intersection of tax evasion and money laundering. Insights were shared about tackling tax evasion in the context of Albania’s black economy and the use of tax evasion as a predicate offence to money laundering. Over the course of two days, a dialogue was opened up about the line between tax efficiency and tax avoidance in practice, recent cases highlighting different approaches to prosecution and sentencing, and European Union and international developments in the response to tax evasion and money laundering..
