On 22nd August, FATF-style regional body GAFILAT published the 2nd follow-up report on Nicaragua. The original mutual evaluation report was adopted by GAFILAT in July 2017. The new report says that Nicaragua has been making important progress in relation to addressing the technical compliance deficiencies identified in its MER and has been re-rated in relation to Recommendations 7 to Largely Compliant,10 to Compliant, 12 to Compliant, and 25 Largely Compliant. Nicaragua will continue in the enhanced follow-up process and will continue to report to GAFILAT on the progress made to strengthen its implementation of AML/CFT measures.
