Eighth Mutual Evaluation Reports

The Seventh Mutual Evaluation Follow-Up report presented by Sierra Leone at the 18th plenary session of GIABA in December 2012, ignited concerns among the International Community on the lack of progress in the AML/CFT regime since the previous report. The Plenary therefore recommended among other things a visit to Sierra Leone by a Special Mission to raise the concerns of the International Community with the authorities in Sierra Leone. As recommended, a special GIABA Mission visited Sierra Leone from 21st -23rd January 2013 and held several discussions with various stakeholders.
