The Stolen Asset Recovery: Politically Exposed Persons is a practitioner guide published in 2009 by the World Bank’s Stolen Asset Recovery Initiative (StAR). This policy paper on PEPs, which outlines various issues and has several recommendations to help the fight against corruption was produced by Theodore Greenberg, Larissa Gray, Delphine Schantz, Michael Latham and Carolin Gardner along with consultations from many practitioners.
“It is a knowledge product designed to help build regimes that can manage potential risks posed by PEPs and prevent PEPs from abusing domestic and international financial systems to launder proceeds of crime and corruption.”
