MALTA: MONEY LAUNDERING FIGHT ‘DOESN’T SEEM LIKE A PRIORITY’ – MONEYVAL

The Times of Malta on 11th August carried a report saying that limited financial and human resources are allocated to investigation and prosecution.  It says that Moneyval experts were “not convinced” that Malta effectively investigates and prosecutes high-level money laundering, bribery, and corruption cases, viewed as one of the Malta’s main shortcomings.  This came after the newspaper said it had seen a draft copy of the Moneyval AML/CFT evaluation of Malta’s AML/CFT systems.  Reportedly Malta has been given a year to get its house in order or face potential blacklisting procedures.
