Saturday, October 04, 2014 Bosnia and Herzegovina: continued lack of progress in anti-money laundering / counter-terrorist financing legislation
MONEYVAL issues a revised public statement on Bosnia and Herzegovina
The Council of Europe’s anti-money laundering body MONEYVAL today adopted, at its 45th plenary meeting (15-19 September), a public statement in the light of continued lack of progress on legislation to address MONEYVAL’s concerns.
The Committee noted that Bosnia and Herzegovina has amended the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Financing of Terrorism Law, which came into force on 25 June 2014. However, the required amendments to the Criminal Code have still not been adopted.
MONEYVAL urges Bosnia and Herzegovina to immediately and meaningfully address its deficiencies on its anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing legislation, in particular by adopting necessary amendments to its Criminal Code.
