Nashat Gaber Mahmoud, an expert, AML/CFT consultant and specialised trainer in banking and financial issues, gave a presentation in which he explained the objectives of the programme in terms of introducing the participants to the latest developments related to money laundering and terrorist financing crimes and efforts to combat them at global, regional and local levels.
The expert touched upon various topics including the efforts exerted by Qatari funds in terms of AML/CFT legal, procedural, financial and commercial aspects, based on Law No (4) of 2010, which is the backbone of the national strategy to combat money laundering and terrorist financing.
The training also covered the role of international organisations in AML/CFT, including the role of the Financial Action Task Force, which was established in 1989 at the G7 Summit held in Paris, in addition to the role of the Egmont Group of Financial Intelligence Units (FIUs), which is an important global financial network established in 1995 to promote international cooperation between FIUs around the world on AML issues.
