Internet - heaven for terrorists

Date: May 17, 2007

It is a land of six million citizens with no police force, no courts and no taxes. The fast-growing economy is lightly controlled, and banks and the stock exchange lack even basic regulation.

Little wonder then that legal experts claim the lax regime could provide a haven for money launderers, fraudsters and even terrorists to hide and move funds.

However, this is not the real world. It is Second Life, the "virtual online community". Unfortunately, the criminal networks threatening to take advantage of the cyberspace world are all too real.
