Utilisation of Cash Couriers
Cash Couriers and Financing of Terrorism
The study dealt with the terrorist use of cash couriers. It examined the possibility of a strategic intelligence oversight by international efforts against financing of terrorism in that there was delayed and underestimated recognition of cash couriers in terrorist financing.
Information was gathered from operational practitioners, from government, law enforcement and private financial sector.
The study gave an overview of cash couriers, then updated details of current deployment of cash couriers in their role(s) of terrorist financing. Operational examples were used in an examination of three regions specifically impacted by terrorist attacks. Conclusions were extrapolated with a simple overall conclusion drawn, and an overall recommendation submitted.
