A speech cited by Eng Abdul Rahman Muhammad Al Hammadi quoted Abdullah Sultan Al Nuaimi, the Ministry of Justice’s Acting Undersecretary, stated: “Today, money laundering and terrorist financing crimes are among the biggest challenges facing the international community, which is in need of the cooperation and solidarity of all countries of the world, without exception, to effectively address this serious crime, and to draw strategies and develop common policies and procedures necessary to combat it, both at the national and international levels.”
A central authority supported this effort by using the latest technologies and applying best practices in legislation to facilitate international cooperation, direct communication, information exchange, and coordination in investigations and trials, and using the latest technologies. As part of his presentation, Al Nuaimi highlighted the UAE’s efforts in fighting money laundering and terrorist financing crimes.
“The UAE is one of the pioneering countries in this field, and many strict legislations and laws have been issued in this context. In coordination with its partners from state institutions internally and externally, it took many necessary measures and coordinated its efforts in this context with all relevant authorities in the country, whether through the Department of International Cooperation, or the Anti-Money Laundering Department in the Ministry,” Al Nuaimi said.
