The author describes the symbiotic nexus, between commercial corruption and money laundering, which has become significant a concern for commercial activities, in both private and public sectors. This work examines the various initiatives, plus the theoretical reasons given as to why the twin-like menace is embarked on, emphasising on the intersection points. Notable initiatives have come from the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and Organization for Economic Corporation and Development (OECD) that are backed by both the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank, via their surveillance and conditionality requirements, to tackle the issues involved at the intersection points of commercial corruption and money laundering. The adequacy or inadequacy of the regulatory mechanisms have as a result, been put under the microscope as there are differences in jurisdictional frameworks.
