Confiscation order against former banker in Ibori case a wakeup call for UK professionals

6th September 2019, London - Reacting to news that an ex-Goldman Sachs banker, who was convicted for helping launder money for a former Nigerian Governor, has been hit with a £7.3 million confiscation order by the National Crime Agency, Ava Lee, Senior Campaigner at Global Witness, said:

“For far too long London’s ‘pinstripe army’ of bankers, lawyers and accountants have been enabling and profiting from the kind of corruption that keeps poor countries poor and drives global instability. This result should be a wakeup call - actions have consequences.”
