Iranian Lawmaker Calls for FATF Guarantees

A senior lawmaker has voiced support for three of four legal measures required from Iran to be in good standing with the Financial Action Task Force, but said a guarantee is needed from the global watchdog that Iran will be able to reap the expected benefits when it fulfills its commitments. In a talk with ICANA, the official news outlet of the parliament, Mohammad Reza Pour-Ebrahimi, the head of Majlis Economic Commission and a vocal MP, discussed Iran’s legal requirements to fulfill its action plan with the Paris-based intergovernmental organization tasked with combating money laundering and financing of terrorism. “Amendments to the Anti-Money Laundering Law and the Combating Financing of Terrorism Law have been reviewed and approved by the parliament and face no problems,” he said. “They will even significantly help create transparency.”
