    A new report reveals there has a higher threat of money laundering in Jersey from countries such as India, Kenya, and the United Arab Emirates.

    The details come from a national risk assessment, which relates to criminal activity in Jersey between 2013 and 2018.

    The government report - a National Risk Assessment of Money Laundering - also suggested there could have been missed opportunities to prosecute criminals because of a lack of experience in law enforcement.

    But, on the whole, it found the island was doing well at addressing the risks of money laundering, but suggested there could have been missed opportunities to prosecute criminals in the past.

    It also did not reflect more recent data.

    The assessment was "first public, centrally co-ordinated risk assessment of money laundering undertaken in the island", the States said.

    Officials said they were putting together a plan to address the points made in the report, which is expected to be published in the next 12 months.

    George Permain, the director of finance crime for the States, said the work would make sure Jersey could meet constantly changing threats.
