APNU/AFC GOVERNMENT HAS GONE A LONG WAY IN CORRECTING THE PPP/C’S FAILURES UNDER THE AML/CFT REGIME
1. Mr. Speaker The magnitude of the failure of the PPP/C Government in implementing an efficacious AML/CFT regime is revealed on a proper examination of the FATF and CFATF.
2. Mr. Speaker, the Government inherited a situation of great reticence to fight against money launderers and an even greater reluctance to counter the financing of terrorism.
3. Mr. Speaker the PPP/C Government had continually failed to remedy the many deficiencies in the Action Plans it had agreed to with both the CFATF and FATF in or around 2011 and 2014 respectively.
