UAE-UK Money Laundering seminar wraps up

posted on 20/03/2006: 1420 views



The UAE and the UK have voiced their resolve to cooperate in combating money-related crimes. At a two-day seminar that wound up at the Central Bank in Abu Dhabi yesterday, UAE and British officials expressed determination to "build up a systematic framework for cooperation in curbing money laundering, terrorism financing, and other money-related crimes." Mechanisms for upgrading the existing systems based on both countries' accumulated experience were also discussed.



Interrogation methods pursued in countering money laundering and terrorism financing operations received focused attention. Participants called for more emphasis on the networks that support the flow of crime money, rather than merely targeting individual agents.



During the seminar, a memorandum of understanding was signed between anti-money laundering and financial intelligence authorities in both countries, for enhancing cooperation in these areas. At the inaugural session, Central Bank Governor had voiced a strong commitment by the UAE to update its legislations and practical measures to combat money laundering, terrorism financing, and monetary crimes.



Governor Sultan Nasser Al Suwaidi also said the UAE was determined to cooperate in this regard with friendly countries and the international community. Al Suwaidi said the UAE was keen on exposing banking, finance and law-enforcement personnel to continuous training on money laundering countermeasures. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
