European Union and Council of Europe logoOrganised crime, corruption and money laundering are serious threats to economies, democracy and the rule of law across the world. South-Eastern Europe is particularly vulnerable to these threats due geographical, political and historical reasons. Criminal activity generates proceeds the amount of which is difficult to ascertain. Yet, money laundering alone costs the Serbian economy between 3%-5% of GDP every year.

Following the expression of interest by the Serbian government and with the funding from the European Commission under IPA 2010, the Council of Europe will soon launch (as from 15 November 2010), a new technical assistance Project against Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing in Serbia (MOLI-Serbia). The project’s duration will be of 36 months. The total amount of funds of the project is 2,200.000 Euro (90.91% EU funds and 9.09% CoE funds). This project builds on the results and recommendations of the previous joint project funded by the European Union and implemented by the Council of Europe, PACO-Serbia (2005-2007).

MOLI-Serbia’s overall objective is to contribute to democracy and the rule of law through prevention and control of money laundering and terrorist and other forms of economic and financial crime in Serbia. The purpose of the Project is to enhance the capacities of the anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing system in Serbia in terms of legislation, operations and capacities.
