Speaking at the opening session of MONEYVAL's 50th plenary meeting, Deputy Secretary General Gabriella Battaini-Dragoni highlighted that “in the past two decades, MONEYVAL has become a globally renowned player in the anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing community.” She added that MONEYVAL is “the most experienced FATF-style regional body when it comes to conducting mutual evaluations” that provides “consistent and accurate interpretations of the FATF standards in the European region”.

“In the past year the Council of Europe has taken a number of important steps to help our member states combat violent extremism”, the Deputy Secretary stated, and MONEYVAL’s actions to step up counter-terrorist financing measures “are a hugely valuable addition to this body of on-going work”.

In his address, the FATF Executive Secretary, David Lewis, stressed the essential role that MONEYVAL plays in the global AML/CFT network, being “one of the oldest and strongest FSRBs in the global network” and setting “an example for all to follow.”

Mr Lewis added that: “Moneyval was the only FSRB to conduct two rounds of evaluations under the 2004 FATF methodology and was the first FSRB to start assessing effectiveness.”
