FIU Flags Billions In Money Laundering Activities

An estimated $55 billion in suspected money laundering transactions were flagged by the Financial Intelligence Unit of Trinidad and Tobago.

Acting Director of the FIU Nigel Stoddard suggested the money may have been used to fund illegal activities.

During the second annual virtual compliance officers conference, hosted by the Credit Union League of Trinidad and Tobago, Minister of National Security Fitzgerald Hinds listed a few of the organisations Government has partnered with to prevent such activities.

Minister Hinds said the Government also developed legislation to deal with these which include the Proceeds of Crime Act Chap 11:27 and the Financial Intelligence Unit Regulations.
