Activity Synopsis (ID# 31890) (Hide Synopsis)

Objective(s) Proposals available to improve legislation and practice and increase the efficiency of the key institutions with regard to the search, seizure and confiscation of proceeds from crime and money laundering and the financing of terrorism 
Output/Results Previous PACA assistance already contributed in key aspects to amendments to the Anti-money Laundering Law, together with a core Manual for Prosecutors on the Investigation of Economic Crime – contributing to the implementation of MONEYVAL and GRECO recommendations respectively. During the reporting period extensive guidelines of the General Department for the Prevention of Money Laundering for reporting entities were already completed and training provided. PACA developed and agreed a proposal for the General Prosecutor’s Office to ensure efficient and consistent implementation of the Anti-mafia Law, as well as finalising a guideline for accountants and auditors on the detection of money laundering. Training and assistance on due diligence and monitoring of Politically Exposed Persons was also provided to assist with the implementation of MONEYVAL recommendations. 
Conclusions/Follow Up the assistance in the field of AML/CFT contributed to the further improvement of the legislation which will be followed by the revision and additional support in reforming of the secondary legislation in 2012 and in accordance with Moneyval recommendations.
