If only they'd cocked up their VAT returns as well, they'd be looking at 15 years minimum.

How do you actually send money to the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa? Do they have online banking there? Cash machines?

(This is speculation not an enquiry if Special Branch are listening).

Easily by the sounds of it. Compare to opening a childrens bank account in the UK in order to deposit their £10 pocket money, which requires a 4 hour money laundering interview, and 15 certified documents (by a high court judge).

EU rules 'innit.
