    The lesson that Saddam Hussein quickly grasped was that the UN lends itself to money-laundering. In August, a UN staffer named Alexander Yakovlev pleaded guilty in federal court to taking hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of bribes, involving possibly hundreds of millions' worth of tainted contracts—many of them in force to this day. We have regularly issued public statements to highlight deficiencies in particular jurisdictions. When CIA chief weapons inspector Charles Duelfer went to Iraq in looking for weapons, the money trail took him straight to the UN relief operation, which, as he would report, had become a shill for an arms and illicit-money network that reached through Syria to Belarus and Russia.

    Has the relationship between the EU and the UN been improved? How has terrorism finance evolved and how will it continue to evolve with technological advancements such as virtual currency? Takes responsibility for incorporating gender perspectives and ensuring the equal participation of women and men in all areas of work. Paul Volcker, when tapped by Annan himself to head the Oil-for-Food investigation, was serving not only on the board of directors of UNA-USA but also as a director of its business council—which advertises itself as a networking resource for businesses interested in getting a piece of the billions in UN contracts handed out every year. The Protocol against the Smuggling of Migrants by Land, Sea and Air is concerned with the aggravating problem of organized crime groups for smuggling persons. On top of whatever bribery he managed to deploy, Saddam became for a time one of the largest direct contributors to the Secretariat's budget.

    These three major international drug control treaties are mutually supportive and complementary. How is the recent nuclear deal with Iran likely to affect ongoing CTF efforts in the region? Volcker promised to investigate, but never did. All the more reason, then, to force ourselves at long last to take a hard, undeceived look at what the institution has in fact become, put aside the lengthy and futile quest for its reform, and begin to think more concretely about how, with or without it, we can best work to advance the interests and values of ourselves and other members of the civilized world. This is a new and challenging task.

Importantly, these detailed reports show countries and policymakers which deficiencies are present in their United Nations Global Programme against Money Laundering book. The UN Global Programme against Money Laundering is ready to provide expert training, assistance, public awareness and research tools on the art of financial investigations, prosecutions, best banking practices and financial regulations for government, business, law enforcement and judicial professionals.

There will never be enough John Boltons to counter all of this—not that it was easy to come up with even one. Due regard will be paid to the importance of recruiting the staff on as wide a geographical basis as possible.

I would like to briefly touch on the evolving membership structure in the FATF. Given that we are a task force, we operate under a fixed life-span which requires explicit agreement among Ministers to prolong it.

Bringing these various strands together is a dizzying array of interwoven boards, working groups, and staff positions both within and around the UN.

This equally applies, mutatis mutandis, with respect to a former or current staff member who has held or holds an appointment in another entity applying the United Nations Staff Regulations and Rules and who applies for a temporary position with the Secretariat.

How should they be regulated? Candidates may be subject to screening against these standards, including but not limited to, whether they have committed or are alleged to have committed criminal offences or violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law.

Moreover, even though there can no longer be any doubt that the scale of the rot is large, the UN's top management continues to insist to the contrary. A: Money laundering undermines international efforts towards free and competitive markets, and the development of national economies: It distorts the functioning of markets: money laundering transactions can increase the demand for cash, create exchange rate volatility and generate unfair competition.

Teamwork: Good interpersonal skills and ability to establish and maintain effective partnerships and working relations in a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic environment with sensitivity and respect for diversity, including gender balance. Staff numbers are likewise a matter of mystery. The economic power generated by outlaw activities provides criminal organizations with leverage on small economies.

The incumbents will work under the overall guidance of the Regional Representative in each of the respective Offices, and in the case of Kabul also under the technical guidance of the Senior Law Enforcement Expert based in Kabul.

The United Nations Secretariat is a non-smoking environment. What can be done to strengthen the international CTF system? There are legitimate commercial, legal or even human rights reasons for confidentiality. Most, when probed, open onto ever-receding vistas of regional offices, working groups, and the like.

I strongly believe, and experience has shown, that a single set of Recommendations and requirements is less resource intensive and a more effective approach for both governments and the private sector.

Currently it is gridlocked over matters as seemingly straightforward as cleaning up its own management department. But as a practical matter, the organization has behaved for the most part as a spectator.
