Police to search for laundered money in casinos

A draft bill on money laundering prepared by the Interior Ministry would let police check five-year-old information about casino clients, the Pravda daily reported on August 27.

Casinos would have to take detailed information on their visitors from their identification cards and archive each casino visit for at least five years. They would have to provide this information to the economic crime unit on its request.

The Interior Ministry wants to use the law to prevent money laundering.
