Australia: cash smuggling ex-banker jailed

A judge in Sydney has sentenced a former Bank of China employee to four months behind bars for attempting to shift AUD800,000 (USD751,000).

The court used Australia‘s anti-money laundering laws to prosecute the woman and an unnamed co-accused who had used a password to collect the cash from a third party at a Sydney railway station. There were no details of money laundering as we know it, but the judge did comment on the woman’s personal financial situation.
