Money laundering mastermind jailed
Tuesday 5th March 2013, 12:00PM GMT.
GUEST workers from Eastern Europe laundered more than £200,000-worth of ‘dirty money’ through Guernsey, the Royal Court was told yesterday.
The man who controlled the operation, Martins Apskalns, 27, was jailed for four years, but three syndicate members who were also charged with money laundering frustrated investigators by jumping bail and leaving the island.
Crown Advocate Fiona Russell said it had been a case of cyber crime, which had become something of a growth industry in recent years.
‘It is an international criminal activity with no national boundaries,’ she said.
