Ann Mulligan secures role in Cayman Islands.

Ann Mulligan was recently successful in securing the role of Crown Counsel 1 (Financial Crime) working at the office of the DPP in the Cayman Islands. This role is very important in light of the recent deficiencies identified by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). In particular, the need has been identified by FATF, for proactive inter-agency engagement in order to identify complex cross-border money laundering and terrorist financing cases, to investigate them and where appropriate to prosecute them. This requires a new emphasis on international cooperation in order to pursue cases against individuals and legal persons regardless of citizenship and location. Asset recovery (confiscation and civil recovery) both in the Cayman Islands and abroad is a major priority in order to ensure that offenders are deprived of the proceeds of crime. Ann is delighted to embrace this exciting new challenge
