Money laundering – White collar crimes in Israel
Eldad Bar Lev
In recent years, we have been aware of many criminal investigations involving white-collar workers, including bank managers, managers of insurance companies, senior officials in various government ministries, and a considerable number of well-known businessmen.
In this article, I will present a number of findings related to a phenomenon called white-collar crime, with the aim of examining what is the law enforcement policy required to deal with this phenomenon in Israel. That is of great importance in today's modern society. To this end, I examined the question of whether there is a general deterrence in this type of crime, with an emphasis on one of its dimensions – "money laundering".
