Inter-Agency Collaboration

The Financial Intelligence Centre in collaboration with the Anti –Money Laundering Unit of the Ghana Revenue Authority embarked on a joint visit to the leaderships of selected Associations of the DNFBP sector. These included the Ghana Real Estates Developers Association, Car dealers Association, Christian Council of Ghana, Minerals Commission, gaming commission and accountants. The objective of the joint visit was to introduce to players the role of the Ghana Revenue Authority in supervising the DNFBP sector in accordance with the Act and also to create awareness of the sector on their AML/CFT obligations.

Financial sector regulators also held a forum to discuss matters of concern on AML/CFT measures being put in place. In the said forum, the National Insurance Commission and Securities and Exchange Commission indicated plans to have their Risk-Based Supervisory manual approved by their various managements.

On August 16, 2019, the FIC also held a stakeholder engagement to receive feedback from Law Enforcement Agencies and the revenue agency (Narcotics Control Board, Ghana Police Service, Bureau of National Investigation, the Economic and Organised Crime Office and the Ghana Revenue Authority) on the challenges they face in prosecuting money laundering cases particularly on intelligence reports disseminated by the Financial Intelligence Centre.
