ARA City Radio presenter Sam Steen and Luxembourg Times reporter Emery Dalesio discuss some of the week's top stories, including how the European Union's weak defences against money laundering and terrorist financing are allowing hundreds of billions of euros in suspicious transactions to take place every year, the bloc's budget watchdog said; an Amnesty International report outlining how spying software from a firm operating through layers of Luxembourg corporate entities has been used by governments to target human rights advocates from Morocco to Mexico; and the Luxembourg government admitting that there are no systematic checks at Findel airport to see if UK passengers are taking mandatory tests on arrival.  

Some 9,000 daily listeners tune in to the English-language radio station, which is on air weekdays from 6 o’clock in the morning to 2 o'clock in the afternoon.
