The Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI; known to many of its employees as the Bank of Crooks and Cheats Incorporated) was a major international bank founded in 1972. At its peak, it operated in 78 countries, had over 400 branches and claimed assets of $25 billion. In 1991, the BCCI became the focus of the world's worst financial scandal - it had been involved in money laundering, bribery, support of terrorism, arms trafficking, the sale of nuclear technologies, the commission and facilitation of tax evasion, smuggling, illegal immigration and the illicit purchases of banks and real estate. The Bank was found to be worthless, with at least $13 billion unaccounted for. Tariq Ali wrote an account of the rise and fall of the BCCI. Ali produced two documentaries on the Bank for Channel Four but, as many depositors and other victims of the Bank were involved in litigation, this script was never offered to any company and remained hidden in Ali's archives. A few years before the collapse of the Bank, Ali also had, in a series of unsigned articles for the New Statesman, warned of the shaky foundations on which the Bank was built. The BCCI sued the New Statesman and a new and inexperienced Editor caved in and apologized. Ali's script appears for the first time in this volume and the New Statesman articles are included as Appendices.
