THE FINANCIAL INTELLIGENCE Unit continued its sensitisation exercise with dealers of precious stones and metals at a workshop at Sugar Bay this morning.

Director of the unit Shelley Nicholls-Hunte said the thrust was to make the dealers and people in other sectors which were vulnerable to money laundering aware of the requirements of the regional and international regulatory bodies.

This included having an Anti-money Laundering Compliance Programme.

The workshops came ahead of the December mutual evaluation exercise to assess the money-laundering climate in the various sectors on the island. (YB)
