THE FINANCIAL INTELLIGENCE UNIT (FIU) COMMENCES THE SENSITIZATION OF SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN THE WESTERN AREA ON MONEY LAUNDERING (ML) AND TERRORIST FINANCING (TF)
In accordance with section 13 (1) (o) of the Anti-Money Laundering and Combating Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Act of 2012, the National Risk Assessment (NRA) and Outreach Division has commenced a ten-day sensitization of secondary schools in the Western Area. This event is aimed at school-going pupils to have them well informed and divert their mindset from every form of criminal activity that generates significant proceeds of crime.
In addition, the aim is to further increase public awareness about money laundering and terrorist financing not only in the schools but across the diverse communities in which these pupils live.
The list of schools that benefited from the inaugural sensitization campaign for were Government Rokel Secondary Schools, Rokel Secondary School and Albert Academy Secondary School.
In the next coming days, the Outreach team is expected to distribute 3,000 flyers to schools, collect feedbacks from schools and tailored our strategic communication with them. The intention is to keep them well informed so that they neither become victims of ML and TF nor perpetrators.
