THE ANTI-MONEY LAUNDERING COMPLIANCE TRAINING AND GOAML SYSTEM ONBOARDING WORKSHOP FOR LICENSED CASINOS IN UGANDA
Casinos are Accountable Persons and are required by the Anti-Money Laundering Act (AMLA) to maintain AML compliance programs that adequately address specific risks posed by their products, services and customers.
FIA in collaboration with the UNODC Eastern Africa facilitated a three-day workshop for the 23 licensed Casinos from 27th to 29th March, 2023, under the strengthening crime prevention and criminal justice programme.
The training empowered participants with mechanisms to monitor trends and patterns of illicit financial flows (IFFs) and money laundering. The training further equipped casino staff with the necessary skills and tools to help detect and prevent financial crimes.
