The anti-money laundering agency, GIABA, has said it is to assist financial institutions in The Gambia to effectively address existing challenges and new requirements emerging from the revised Financial Action Task Force (FATF) Standards and the new methodology.
This will include Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (ML/TF) risk assessment and application of risk-based approach to the anti-Money Laundering and Counter Financing Terrorism (AML/CFT) implementation.
GIABA announced on Friday that it will hold a 3-day national workshop on ML and TF risk assessment for financial institutions and Designated Non-Financial Institutions Businesses and Professions (DNFBPs) in Banjul from July 27-29, 2016.
