Workshop for Moroccan financial institutions on preventing and identifying money-laundering transactions related to corruption

On 12 April 2017, the Council of Europe, in cooperation with the Moroccan Anti-Corruption Authority (ICPC), the FIU (UTRF) and the Central Bank (Bank Al-Maghrib) organised a workshop on preventing and identifying money-laundering of proceeds of corruption.

The workshop participants discussed best practices to strengthen the banking sector’s capacities in identifying and reporting suspicious transactions.

CoE experts, compliance managers of the Moroccan banking sector, as well as officials from the FIU and ICPC exchanged views on the relationship between corruption and money-laundering, international AML standards on politically exposed persons and reporting indicators. The discussions focused on the banking sector regulations, the supervisory role of the Moroccan Central Bank as well as standards for AML compliance frameworks.
