On 10 August 2022 , the EU Global Facility team, led by Team Leader David Hotte, concluded its scoping mission to Pretoria, South Africa. 🇿🇦
We would like to commend our main interlocutor – Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) – for organising very interactive and productive initial interactions with most agencies responsible for the efficient functioning of AML/CFT system in the country.
In the presence of the EU Delegation to Pretoria, our Key Experts Mamuka Jgenti and Alexandre Taymans reviewed the current state of play with the South African counterparts, and discussed the needs they expressed with regards to AML/CFT technical assistance.
The two parties also assessed the technical assistance steps to be taken accordingly.
“The EU Global Facility is looking forward to working with the partner state, in close coordination with other EU-funded initiatives active in the region and South Africa, as well as other relevant TA providers,” concluded David Hotte.
