APML Prepares FIU Uzbekistan for EGMONT Group Membership

26 November 2010

Delegation of APML, headed by its Director, Aleksandar Vujičić, was in the official visit to the Uzbek FIU, in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, 15-19 November 2010. The visit was arranged in cooperation with OSCE, for the purposes of preparing Uzbek FIU for Egmont Group Membership.

Namely, APML has been designated a sponsor by the Egmont Group, given among other things its observer membership in the EAG (Eurasian Group on Combating Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism) for the admittance of Uzbek FIU into Egmont Group membership. In other words, the APML is entrusted with an extremely important and out-of-ordinary role in its portfolio of international activities to prepare and advise another FIU on technical and know-how matters, so that the latter would meet all the pre-requisites for becoming part of international community for the exchange of financial intelligence through Egmont Group and its secure website.
Being entrusted with this role means that the APML experts, APML itself, but also the Republic of Serbia as a whole are credited for their excellence in engaging with and contributing to the work of international organizations dealing with money laundering and terrorism financing matters.
