Well, London might be a good choice. It is a safe place and seems a good fit for their line of business.
"It's safe."
While there are rare exceptions, shootings, kidnappings and physical intimidation of those from unstable countries are rare in the British capital.

Villains choose 'safe' London to launder their dirty money

I laughed so hard that coffee came out my nose.

OK, I wiped up the coffee.

2014 London crime: more than 43 theft offenses per 1000 (yes, per 1000) for 12 months.

Almost as bad as Chile. Real safe.
It's safe for those who live there...but not for tourists. :)

Those pesky immigrants must be raising the curve. :) And that same UN report also indicates that Ireland has a lower rate of homicide than Belgium or Finland :wink:...plus the second lowest rate of female homicide in Europe. :D
