The Monetary Authority of Singapore’s decision in late May to expel Swiss bank BSI from the country over repeated anti-money laundering failures may well have rung in a new era of enforcement against financial institutions in the city-state. GIR was in town the day BSI was shown the door. In this issue, we find out what to expect from enforcement authorities when an investigation crosses Singapore, and meet the city-state’s leading white-collar specialists.

GIR also visited Oslo to meet the great and the good of Norway’s investigations bar and learn the story behind the collapse of the country’s largest tax evasion case.

Elsewhere this magazine, we take an in-depth look into the potential ramifications of the UK’s recent vote to leave the European Union. Practitioners from the new commercial crime group at Fountain Court Chambers discuss the potential impact of the decision on legal professional privilege, money laundering, mutual legal assistance, the European Arrest Warrant and more.
