Man Jailed For Money Laundering

23rd October 2015

A man’s been jailed for two years by Jersey’s Royal Court for money laundering.

Romanian-born Adrian Marius Adam was convicted following an investigation by the Police’s Joint Financial Crimes Unit involving a holiday scam.

30 year old Adam opened numerous bank accounts at various local branches using several identities – moving in stolen money and withdrawing it elsewhere.

Police say he and his co-accused, 27 year old Siramona Haffner had key roles in a well-planned organised crime group.

Haffner was sentenced in June to ten and half months in prison.

The force says their convictions – and custodial sentences – should sent a strong message to criminals that the island will not tolerate financial crime.
