Abstract

Jimmy Gurule was quoted in the Reuter article Ukraine crisis casts cloud over Moscow anti-money laundering meeting on March 19.

"The invasion of Crimea is a blatant act of aggression, a serious crime under international law. Russia should not be rewarded for (Putin's) criminal acts by being permitted to host a plenary session of FATF," said Gurule, now a law professor at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana.

"The event should be boycotted by the FATF member states. At a minimum, the Obama administration should prohibit the U.S. delegate to FATF from traveling to Moscow and participating," he said.
