Law enforcement agencies trained in terrorism financing investigation

British experts have just concluded a three-day capacity building programme on terrorism financing investigation for Mauritian law enforcement agencies.

Experts on anti-money laundering and countering financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) from Her Majesty’s (HM) Treasury, namely the Head of Strategy and Engagement, Ms Alison Kelly, from the Sanctions and Illicit Finance – UK Technical Assistance Unit of Her Majesty’s (HM) Treasury along with the Technical Advisor, Mr Ian Collins of the Unit, were the resource persons facilitating the programme.

This endeavour demonstrates UK’s commitment to support Mauritius in becoming a regional leader to combating illicit financial flows.

The programme was organised following the delisting of the country by the FATF, UK and EU.

“We need to sustain the momentum that the country has created so that we remain a jurisdiction of high level of compliance and to ascertain that the AML/CFT frameworks remain effective, said Navindsing Jugmohunsing, Acting Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Financial Services.

The capacity building, according to Ms Alison Kelly, will support Mauritius understand and work towards these standards, particularly meeting FATF’s outcome 9.

“The way to achieve FATF standards is to have national cooperation between agencies”, she said, adding that understanding the risks of terrorist financing and working together to address these risks by going from policy to tax level will provide tips for financial investigation.
