This chapter looks at acts of terrorism and the issue of conspiracy. It starts by defining ‘terrorism’ and looking at various acts of terrorism and the history of terrorism and how the latter relates to money laundering. It then considers money laundering offences in particular and conspiracy to commit such offences. It looks at the example of the Salik case. In relation to this case, it considers the issue of property identified versus property not identified. It concludes this section of the chapter by looking at the implications of the Salik case. This discussion leads to the question: is knowledge relevant if the defendant intended to commit a crime?
