The criminal type applies even if the laundering behaviors or the crime from which the assets come have been committed, totally or partially abroad, and even if there is no conviction for the antecedent crime.
Historical origin of the crime of money laundering
The crime of money laundering is an example that criminal law also evolves over time, as it has been endowed with content and has gone from almost nonexistence to being one of the most common in our Courts and Tribunals.
The term “money laundering” arises in the US when in New York City the italian mafia used a network of laundries with legal benefits through which they introduced the money obtained from the commission of crimes into the market, thus passing that money to have the appearance of legality.
The international evolution of the fight against organized crime, drug trafficking and terrorism has fueled this crime, hence its relevance.
