AN ENORMOUS luxury yacht and its crew – including two Australians – has been seized by police in Bali for having alleged links to an international money-laundering scheme used to fund Hollywood films and lavish lifestyles.

Bali police have confirmed the 29-strong crew of a luxury yacht impounded yesterday included two Australians.

Theyโ€™re now part of an international investigation being led by the FBI into a money laundering scheme, which was also said to have funded swish parties in Las Vegas and luxury mansions in the US.
