A Dutchman and his Thai wife on Friday pleaded not guilty to money laundering charges involving several million euros brought against them by public prosecutors.

Johannes Petrus Maria van Laarhoven, 54, and Mingkwan Kaen-in, or Mingkwan Vanarhoven, 32, were indicted in the Criminal Court on Friday for alleged violation of the Anti-Money Laundering Act of 1999.

The court record showed they pleaded not guilty. The court set Dec 22 for the first hearing.

The couple were arrested in Pattaya on July 23 in a joint operation involving the Office of the Attorney-General, the Anti-Money Laundering Office (Amlo) and the Department of Special Investigation.

According to the case filed by prosecutors, the defendants and accomplices transferred several million euros obtained from the sale of drugs from banks in Europe and one in Singapore to Mr Laarhoven’s Kasikornbank accounts in Pattaya between July 2008 and June this year.

Their electronic transactions included 500,000 euros wired from Deefety Holdings Ltd, a firm they set up in Cyprus, to the Thai bank.

More money was transferred by SWIFT electronic transactions from Deutche Bank in Germany under instructions of the Edmond de Rothchild Bank in Luxembourg and Julius Baer Bank in Singapore, the case report said.

SWIFT is the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, a standard method of interbank transfer.

They used the money to buy several blocks of land, buildings and cars worth more than 100 million baht, according to the prosecution case.

Mr Laarhoven is being detained at Bangkok Remand Prison and Mrs Mingkwan  at the Central Women’s Correctional Institution.

The court on Wednesday threw out a counter-lawsuit against prosecutors and Amlo chief Seehanat Prayoonrat lodged by the defendants’ lawyers on Oct 8.

Suprawat Jaismut, one of the defence lawyers, said he had not yet seen the court’s full decision on the counter-lawsuit and would consult his clients on whether to take the case to the Appeals Court.

The municipal prosecutor of Palermo has closed an investigation into Malta’s consul general to Palermo, Trapani and Agrigento – Alfredo Barbaro – who is to be charged with aggravated financial misappropriation, money laundering and other financial breaches totalling to €20 million in evaded tax.

Barbarbo and members of his family, Giovanni, Pietro and Federico Barbaro, have already paid back €8 million of the contested monies.

According to LaSicilia.com, two Dutch middlemen would send false invoices for the purchase of goods and consultancies to companies in Poland, Italy, Finland, Spain, Portugal and Luxembourg; these companies would use these invoices to falsely claim they were accumulating individual costs and in some cases taking back VAT rebates for purchases that were never made.

The money, through offshore companies, would end up in tax haven accounts in the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas.

Through other middlemen, the money would be brought back to ‘secure’ European locations like Monaco, Luxembourg and Switzerland, and laundered through investments in new companies.

The Dutch middlemen earned a percentage of the tax evaded. In Palermo alone, the Barbaro family amassed €20 million in evaded tax money.

Hire a solicitor and you must produce a utility bill or bank statement as proof of address, and a passport or driving licence as photo ID. It’s to stop money-laundering.

Same with a casino. Even if you’re there as a diner and not playing, you’re still required to go through a similar rigmarole.

None of it makes any difference: London is one of the world’s leading centres for the washing of dirty money. Just how major and sophisticated the business has become is vividly highlighted in today’s Independent. I was tipped off about the scam detailed in the paper at the International Symposium on Economic Crime in Cambridge last month.

All credit to Jim Armitage for standing it up. The wheeze works like this: two British companies owned by Russian crooks sue each other in Moldova over a loan that has supposedly gone sour; the loan is backed by guarantors in Russia, also crooks; the Moldovan court orders the Russian guarantors to pay the British company; the Russians transfer the money, which is authenticated by a Moldovan court order, to an EU bank account. Hey presto! A huge sum of illegitimate cash — it could be hundreds of millions — has entered the banking system.

In total, reckon investigators, as much as $20 billion (£12.5 billion) has been cleaned via the Moldovan launderette. It could be a lot more, because this only relates to bogus litigation in Moldova.

The small, Eastern European country is selected because its legal system is regarded as relatively lax. But other jurisdictions could be being used for the same reason — nobody knows.

What is certain is that the criminals are targeting the UK because it’s so easy to form companies here (at least 19 UK businesses are under investigation in relation to Moldova).

The gaping hole they’re exploiting is that under UK law, companies can obscure their owners’ identities by using “nominee” directors – people who put their names to a company without actually having anything to do with them.

Companies House reveals the same names as directors cropping up again and again. They’re nominees, without any connection to the companies concerned.

The Government says it will make companies disclose the identities of those who own more than  25 per cent of their shares.

But the rule change is taking forever. And as ever too, it does not go far enough. Meanwhile we will go on producing our utility bills and passports.
