The amendments made to the draft organic law amending the organic law on the fight against terrorism and money laundering comply with the recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), Minister of Justice Ghazi Jeribi said at his hearing Thursday by the parliamentary General Legislation Committee.

Tunisia and two other countries, Sri Lanka and Trinidad and Tobago, were added to the blacklist of third countries thought to be at high risk of money laundering and terrorist financing, on February 6, 2018.

The Department of Justice is committed to filling the gaps identified, particularly with regard to the composition of the National Committee to Combat Terrorism, he pointed out, adding that the commission’s mission is to implement the UN resolutions inherent in the financing of terrorism and non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
