I wonder what they’re charged with? Money laundering, I guess, on a micro scale? I would bet they’re only arrested to get to the guys at the top.

illegal emigrants

Since the Berlin Wall came down, is there anywhere it’s illegal to emigrate? North Korea, I suppose.

Yeah, that’s the trouble, right? How do these people know they’re laundering money if they’ve been led to believe that these transfers are part of a business?

This sounds unethical to me.

Police? Unethical? Impossible!

Typically, ignorance of a crime is not a defense. It may be a mitigating circumstance, but still.
