The joint EU/Council of Europe Project against Economic Crime (PECK II) supported a working group meeting to discuss shortcomings of the existing Administrative Instruction on Politically Exposed Persons and its alignment with international standards. A Legal Opinion on reviewing the Administrative Instruction No. 04/2014 on Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) was presented by the Project and discussed with the participation of FIU-K, reporting entities from the financial sector, Central Bank of Kosovo and Ministry of Finance. It is expected that the Administrative Instruction now be introduced in the government for a formal process of amendment, consultation and approval.
