Roger Ballard dissects the Treasury proposals for upgrading the UK's current regulartory structure for MSBs in the light of his knowledge of the operation of contemporary IVTS/Hawala system, as well as an analyis of developments in the USA which has been set out by Nikos Passas in a recently published article entitled "Fighting Terror with Error: the counter-productive regulation of informal value transfers". Roger Ballard reaches equally sceptical conclusions about UK regulatory efforts in this field.
