The General Inspector of Financial Information has signed two memoranda of understanding concerning cooperation in the exchange of financial intelligence related to money laundering and the financing of terrorism, between the General Inspector of Financial Information and the partner units from:
- Sint Maarten - Financial Intelligence Unit of Sint Maarten,
- United Kingdom - National Crime Agency of the United Kingdom.
The signing of a new memorandum with the UK Financial Intelligence Unit resulted from the transformation of the structure of the UK Financial Intelligence Unit (previously an agreement with the National Criminal Intelligence Service signed on 29 April 2002 in Warsaw was in force).
After the agreements were signed by the foreign partners, they came into force and allow for rapid and constructive exchanges of information necessary to fight money laundering and terrorism financing, including the arrangements for spontaneous sharing of information – on initiative of both sides.
The agreement with Sint Maarten is 67th agreement in the area of strict cooperation in combating money laundering and terrorism financing, signed by the General Inspector of Financial Information.
