Italian money-laundering reports up 37% in 2012

Rome, June 10 - A watchdog unit of the Italian central bank reported 67,0000 cases of suspected money-laundering in 2012, up 37% compared to 2011, the Bank of Italy announced on Monday. The number of suspected money-laundering cases flagged by the Bank of Italy's Financial Information Unit (UIF) has increased six-fold since 2008. ''There is a growth in anti-money-laundering culture,'' said UIF Director Claudio Clemente. A total of 250,000 suspected cases have been signaled since the anti-money-laundering reporting mechanism was introduced in 1997, the bank said.
