[USPRwire, Fri Feb 19 2010] Edcomm Bankerís Academy has recently updated its Anti Money Laundering (AML) training program designed specifically for financial institutions in Pakistan. Focus on AML for the Islamic Republic of Pakistan has been enhanced to include more information and new interactive activities about the AML laws and regulations in this South Asian country.

Money laundering in Pakistan is a pervasive problem. Financial crimes related to narcotics trafficking, terrorism, smuggling, tax evasion, and corruption remain a significant problem in Pakistan. Therefore, in 2007, Pakistan enacted the AML Ordinance, establishing regulations for AML and combating the financing of terrorism and criminalizing money laundering. Under the Ordinance, the Financial Monitoring Unit (FMU) was created. The FMU serves as Pakistan's Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) and is in charge of handling Suspicious Transaction Reports (STRs).

Focus on AML for the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, from Edcomm Bankerís Academy, teaches bank employees about AML laws in Pakistan and familiarizes them with AML policies and procedures. Beginning with an overview of Anti Money Laundering (AML), this interactive program goes on to cover International Money Laundering, Money Laundering in Pakistan and how to prevent, detect and report money laundering. Focus on AML for the Islamic Republic of Pakistan can be customized to meet the needs of every Bank, Credit Union or Money Services Business (MSB) and is regularly updated to include changing laws and policies.
