Individuals ranging from Nazi war criminals to tax fraudsters have long been known to secretly transfer assets by smuggling cash. Today’s “Asset Search News Roundup” focuses on this smuggling.
- The January 11, 1941 article “Confirms Nazi Money Hiding“, describes one Holocaust-era scheme in which Nazi war criminal Hermann Goering pocketed smuggled cash. Goering is mentioned at the Asset Search Blog article “During A War Everybody Loots A Little Bit“.
- “A Doctor, A Lawyer & Bricks Of Cash In Switzerland” discusses a tax fraud partly facilitated through bulk-cash smuggling. Criminal charges just lodged by Indian police against a top-ranking Tibetan Buddhist monk, also bring up cash smuggling. As The Telegraph and Time report, police claim the monk possessed smuggled cash at his monastery, which is in northern India.
