$3.8 Trillion in Suspicious Transfers
Moscow Times 06 December 2010

Russian financial institutions reported 120 trillion rubles ($3.8 trillion)
of suspicious transactions to the anti-money laundering watchdog in the
first nine months of 2010, Kommersant reported Monday. (...)

Kommersant cited an unidentified spokesman for the anti-money laundering
watchdog as saying banks, insurance companies and financials services
companies had made 5.6 million filings about suspect transactions in the
first nine months.

The paper said the volume of the suspicious transactions was more than
double the 57 trillion ruble figure reported for the same period of last
year and is over three times Russia's nominal gross domestic product.
