Last year was a near-record for the number of money laundering cases reported to the government.
With 1,585 cases, 2012 was second only to 2011.
The Office of Communication for Money Laundering says 2011 was a record because of cases related to the Arab Spring.
And even though there were no major political events last year the number of money laundering cases was almost steady.
The sum of the assets involved last year was 3.1 billion francs, again, only a bit lower than the previous year.
Six of the cases involved about half of the money.
Three were related to diversion of public funds from a foreign government, two related to fraud and the last concerned an Asian criminal organization.
Two-thirds of the suspects are turned into authorities by banks…the rest by companies, trusts and asset managers.
