TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ASSET RECOVERY NETWORK OF THE FINANCIAL ACTION TASK FORCE OF LATIN AMERICA – RRAG

The FATF-style regional body GAFILAT has published this report, dated September 2020.  RRAG is a network of contacts from GAFILAT member countries that aims at facilitating the identification and tracking of assets, proceeds or instrumentalities of illicit activities for the purpose of their recovery.  It currently comprises the 17 GAFILAT member countries, in addition to Andorra, Spain, Italy, El Salvador, France, and EUROPOL (which serves as the Secretariat of the Candem Asset Recovery Interagency Network – CARIN).  It is currently supported in its activities by the German Development Cooperation implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).  One of RRAG’s great achievements is the electronic platform for the exchange of information.  However, the RRAG still has the possibility to strengthen some aspects that will allow it to show more results and be more effective in achieving its purpose.  These challenges mainly cover issues related to information exchange, its structure, and the appropriate use of the electronic platform for information exchange and the capacity to conduct face-to-face events.
