Afghan Parliament passes anti-money laundering laws

afghan parliamentAfghan Lower House approved the much-awaited anti-money laundering laws on Monday.

Consisting of 5 chapters and 29 articles, the laws are passed by the Parliament after the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) warned of blacklisting Afghanistan for failing to take measures against money laundering.

In accordance with the law, Afghanistan’s National Security Council and the UN Security Council will impose sanctions against those individuals and freeze the banks that finance terrorism networks.

This comes only a few days before FATF announces its decision on blacklisting Afghanistan for failing to combat money laundering.

According to experts, it would take 5 years or longer to get Afghanistan’s name off the blacklist.
