I want to provide additional guidance for this final project. For this project, you will explore the database created by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). This database contains documents that exposed the network of more than 214,000 tax havens involving people and corporations from 200 different nations. You will analyze information from cases in the database, and discuss how financial intelligence and FIUs would be used to identify shell entities used to hide money and resource based on the analysis of a real-world scenario from the Panama Papers database.
Select a person or a corporation listed in this database and analyze the documents and intelligence that are in the database that may indicate suspicious financial activity. Most of these documents are related to tax evasion and money laundering crimes. Determine if the intelligence support violation of federal laws and any other possible violation.
PLEASE NOTE: This paper is to learn about financial intelligence and financial crimes. To avoid any political diversions, even though there is information in this database, do NOT select Donald Trump as the subject of your paper. There are numerous other politicians, heads of state, and celebrities in this database to examine.
In the report:
Present your findings based on the intelligence in the database.
Relate all of the different elements we learned throughout the course.
BE SPECIFIC and detailed in your analysis.
Discuss the potential violations so you will need to research potential federal crimes.
Make sure to refer to any and all legal rules and regulations, policies, procedures, and investigative tools.
Make your recommendation to a prosecutor as to how to proceed given the intelligence at hand.
