finland 1

On 16th April, FATF published the review of Finland saying that measures to combat money laundering and terrorist financing are delivering good results, but the country needs to improve supervision.  There are some areas to improve the effectiveness of the country’s framework, especially with regard to the AML/CFT supervision of financial and non-financial institutions.  It says that the money laundering risk in Finland comes primarily from the grey economy, but also from domestic and foreign frauds and the proceeds of drug crimes.   The main terrorist financing risks in Finland stem from sympathisers of terrorist causes and foreign terrorist fighters, in particular ISIL’s foreign terrorist fighters and returnees.
