A native of Edinburgh, Scotland, Peter spent 19 years in the Far East as an investigator in the private sector, based in Hong Kong, he worked on pre-investment Due Diligence, fraud and corruption investigations throughout China and the Asia-Pacific, and was recognised as a leading authority consulting on money laundering and terrorist financing prevention. In 2011 he was recruited by the United Nations Office of Internal Oversight Services and spent four years based in New York, gaining a unique insight into the inefficiencies fostered by the UN in practice. He graduated in law from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, has an MBA from Strathclyde and an LLM in International Criminal Law from the University of Torino, Italy. Admitted to practice law in Scotland, Hong Kong and New York, he has written and provided training in the prevention and investigation of financial crime to both professional and academic audiences, having been a Certified Fraud Examiner and Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist. Following his experience with the UN, he is now an outspoken critic of the corruption and ineptitude inherent in the Organization, particular in respect of it's failure to investigate fraud, waste and abuse within the UN system and the Organizations failure to protect women and children from sexual exploitation.
