The FATF-style regional body, GAFILAT, has published a number of follow-up assessment reports, including this one, which analyses Nicaragua’s progress in remedying technical compliance deficiencies identified in its Mutual Assessment Report. The country is in enhanced follow-up, and will continue to report back to GAFILAT on progress.  The original mutual evaluation report was in July 2017, and this new report is the fourth report on technical compliance progress since then.  As normal with such reports, it does not address effectiveness of controls.  Nicaragua was re-rated in relation to FATF Recommendations 8, 22, 23 and 28.
