The Jordanian Anti Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing Unit (AMLU), in cooperation with the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and its implementing partner, the Global Center, held a meeting to discuss money laundering and terrorist financing (ML/TF) information exchange with peer institutions in Jordan. Participants included representatives of the AMLU, the Central Bank of Jordan, and the members of the Jordanian National Committee for Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Finance of Terrorism.
Discussions focused on overcoming barriers to ML/TF information exchange among financial intelligence units, and the international standards regarding cooperation with counterparts. Representatives of the AMLU highlighted how they exchange information on ML/TF cases with foreign counterparts. Meeting facilitators demonstrated how formal and informal channels can be leveraged to facilitate ML/TF information sharing and provide case examples of such exchanges.
This meeting is part of a series of activities facilitated by Denmark and partners in the Middle East and North Africa region—particularly Jordan, Lebanon, and Iraq—to reinforce their work and partnership in the context of the Counter ISIL Finance Group.
