Iran Parliament Ratifies More AML Amendments

Iran's Parliament in its latest open session on Tuesday continued to review the government-proposed amendments to the country's existing Anti-Money Laundering Law and ratified new measures, as the Financial Action Task Force's next plenary meeting draws nearer.
FATF is expected to announce a highly-anticipated verdict on Iran in June.
According to ICANA, the official news outlet of the parliament, 148 lawmakers from a total of 210 on Tuesday approved an article about capital and profit related to crimes linked to money laundering to replace a previous article.
The new article states that the original amount of capital and its profit will be confiscated and if the collective amount goes up to 10 billion rials ($239,000), the offender will be sentenced to two to five years in prison in addition to a fine.
