The revision of the Kosovo* AML/CFT Law was the focus of a new round of consultations between local and international experts. On 25-26 March 2015, PECK experts held bilateral meetings with the main stakeholders: Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) and Central Bank of Kosovo* (CBK), as well as the Department for Registration and Liaison with NGOs (DRLNGO) to discuss the first draft amendments to the law and assist with further drafting. Furthermore, on 27 March 2015 the PECK Project organised a meeting of the Working Group set up by Ministry of Finance for the revision process in order to further discuss outstanding issues and ways of addressing identified shortcomings. In their presentations and discussions, PECK experts made concrete proposals and recommendations for improving the current draft and advancing the drafting process in order to meet relevant international standards. It was agreed that the revised draft law will be submitted to the PECK experts for review and comments by the end of April 2015. The third on-site mission of PECK experts to finalise and present the draft law is scheduled for June 2015.
