Financial Intelligence Unit Partners With U.S. Embassy To Conduct Anti-Money Laundering Training
Belize City, Belize - The Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) and U.S. Embassy Belize facilitated a training on covert sources of information in money laundering investigations on September 18, 2019.
The training, conducted by the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Technical Assistance, was aimed to enhance awareness of Belize’s criminal laws on preventing money laundering and the use of covert sources in money laundering investigations. 24 participants representing the Belize Police Department, Customs & Excise Department, Belize Tax Services, FIU, Immigration & Nationality Services, and International Financial Services Commission shared case studies, learned key concepts in utilizing covert sources of information, and engaged in practical exercises that address real life scenarios.
This initiative is part of an ongoing partnership between the United States and Belize to enhance the implementation of Belize’s anti-money laundering laws and strengthen governance.
