World money laundering experts meet in Al Ain

"About 14 Arab countries
and three Western nations
gathered in Al Ain for the
Middle East and North Africa
Financial Action Task Force
(MENAFATF) 4th Plenary
Meeting and Typologies
Workshop to talk about on
how they would combat
issues of money laundering,
drugs and terrorism while still
maintaining cooperation and
solidarity among them"

From Al Ain Times, 18th-20th November, page 3.

That's cleared that up then. Reading that headline, I had a wonderful image in my mind of various international 'Most Wanteds' gathering over coffee and dates to discuss the best way to turn filthy funds into clean cash. Now that would be a scoop for Al Ain Times....

I shouldn't bother moving on from that image, you essentially got a hole in one there.

Hi Al Ain Taxi!

Sorry for the confusion. I originally had entitled it "Meeting to combat money laundering held" with my lead mentioning the date and the place when and where it occurred, but my editor had changed it. Anyway, Al Ain Times is still existing. They're just having a hard time keeping the publication up and printing the same volume of copies they are distributing before. As you know, Al Ain is a big, little city with not much news and businesspeople willing to advertise.
