Money laundering

Money laundering

Money laundering

The intentional hiding or concealment of an object while it is known that the object proceeds of crime is punishable under Article 420bis of the Dutch Criminal Code. This is called money laundering. Money laundering is about spending criminal money without it being noticed by the investigative authorities.

If money laundering is suspected, it is important to quickly engage a specialized lawyer. For example, if there is an explanation for the origin of the goods found, it may be important to make a statement quickly. If a person suspected of money laundering gives a statement of the origin of the goods that is not considered implausible beforehand and also verifiable, then it is up to the Public Prosecution Service to prove that the goods in question do have a criminal origin.
