FUGITIVE BRITISH MONEY LAUNDERER SENTENCED IN ABSENTIA TO 68 MONTHS

UK laundryman Richard Baldwin, convicted of money laundering in absentia, was sentenced this week to five years and eight months. The defendant, who violated his bail by fleeing during his trial, laundered his clients' criminal proceeds, which they acquired through Insider Trading. An active arrest warrant has reportedly issued against him.

The defendant, a luxury watch dealer, with the assistance of others, used Panamanian shell companies, dummy invoices and offshore accounts, in a case named in the media Operation Tabernula.
