Siham Osman, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Justice and Head of the National Committee for Combating Money Laundering and Financing Terrorism, confirmed that Sudan has full political will to combat money laundering and terrorism financing, under the supervision of the Council of Ministers.
She addressed the general meeting of the Middle East and North Africa Financial Action Task Force yesterday, which was held virtually.
Osman spoke about Sudan’s desire to “coordinate and cooperate with the all countries in the task force through standards and procedures which allow Sudan to combat money laundering and terrorist financing”. The undersecretary also said she hopes to benefit from the task force’s members and observers by asking for help to recover stolen funds.
In her speech, she affirmed Sudan’s readiness to integrate into the global financial system following the completion of the procedures for removing Sudan from the US list of State Sponsors of Terrorism.
The 22 member states of the group participated in the meeting, along with a number of observers, including the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the Gulf Cooperation Council, and the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime.
