In the first part of this paper, published in Journal of International Banking Regulation ,Volume 4, Number 1, the author analysed the use of a variety of legal devices that have been developed to assist in the identification and interdiction of the proceeds of serious crime in the 'War Against Terror '. He explored the relationship between attacking the profitability of criminal enterprises and the processes of money laundering, as well as referring to the new measures taken in the wake of the 11th September, 2001 attacks on the USA and the perhaps largely unforeseen consequences on world financial stability that may result from their implementation. In this, the final part of the paper, the author refers to the development of new strategies designed rather to disrupt criminal and subversive activities than bring individuals and their wealth before the courts, and the implications that these may have on the traditional justice system.
