The paper presents a normative description of money laundering in the EC law in the light of selected directives of the European Parliament and the Council. The authoress also quotes other international documents which constituted a foundation for Great Britain's legal system of protection against money laundering. The crime-related depiction of money laundering aims to present the typical methods and techniques of money laundering and a serious threat that the internet banking constitutes in this respect. The analysis of the specific legal regulations seems impossible without the knowledge of these issues.
