When criminals or the corrupt disguise the original ownership and control of the proceeds of criminal conduct by making them appear to have derived from a legitimate source, this is known as money-laundering. Billions of dollars of criminally derived money is laundered through financial institutions every year globally, however criminal money can be laundered without assistance of the financial sector.

What good is a Constitution that does not prevent the unscrupulous from looting the till? For a man whose children remain hungry, sick and uneducated, it is a meaningless piece of paper.

Today at Davos

Despite dire predictions about continuity as PM due to the unbecoming shooting off his mouth that has left even his coalition allies aghast, Yusuf Raza Gilani is gracing the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Summit 2012 at Davos, coincidentally the man who could well replace him in the future as the PM of Pakistan is also in town. The Davos Summit is mostly participated in by leading world celebrities in govt, business or industry, academics, NGOs, sports, philanthropy, entertainment, media, etc. Imran Khan has been invited in his own right by the WEF. At least 75-100 Heads of State or Government come to the Summit, many countries send their Foreign, Finance, Trade ministers etc. Pakistan has been represented by the President or the PM for over 20 years, in 2010 Gilani came to DAVOS as the PM. Asif Ali Zardari declined his turn in 2011. No second guesses about the US$ 60 million question as to why Switzerland is a no-go area for our President.
