Could be a good move

SFO scrapped in move against organised crime – 12 Sep 2007 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

The government is merging the SFO with the Police and creating a new Organised Crime Agency.

This is possibly a good move especially where combating money laundering is concerned. When I was selling Anti-Money Laundering software I visited the National Anti-Money Laundering guy at Police HQ. He was a complete plonker and had no idea about where to even begin. His thoughts at the time were that New Zealand didn’t really have a problem with money laundering and that the banking rules that were in place were effectively, oh and his Access database for analysis was top notch. Dick head, I hope he has now perfed.

Anyway, if the government equips this group with top notch tools then it should be effective.
