MONEY LAUNDERING RESULTING FROM THE HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND MIGRANT SMUGGLING CRIMES

The FATF-style regional body for the Middle East and North Africa, MENA-FATF, has produced this publication, which says that it has been found that international and regional ad-hoc reports issued clearly highlight the steady rise in the crimes at the regional and international level.  The report pays especial attention to the effects of the Corona virus – the COVID 19 pandemic which coincided with the period for the implementation of this project.  It says that the methods and techniques used to commit human trafficking and migrant smuggling crimes represent a challenge to combat them and pose many challenges for competent authorities.  Its contents include –

  • International and regional efforts to combat the human trafficking and migrant smuggling crimes;
  • The legal and institutional framework for combating the human trafficking and migrant smuggling crimes and the laundering of their proceeds in the MENA Region;
  • National risk assessment, methods and techniques used to launder money resulting from human trafficking and migrant smuggling;
  • Most important traits and characteristics of money laundering crimes resulting from human trafficking and migrant smuggling in the MENA Region;
  • International cooperation to combat money laundering crimes resulting from human trafficking and migrant smuggling in the MENA Region; and
  • Recommendations and best practices
