The Financial intelligence units of Ukraine and Austria enhance cooperation

The Head of the State Financial Monitoring Service of Ukraine Igor CHERKASKYI signed with the Head of the Financial Intelligence Unit of the Republic of Austria Johannes Peham Memorandum of Understanding concerning cooperation in the area of counteraction to legalization (laundering) of the proceeds from crime, financing of terrorism and financing of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
Thus, the SFMS and the Financial Intelligence Unit of the Republic of Austria have consolidated a common interest in facilitating the prosecution of persons suspected on legalizing (laundering) of proceeds from crime, terrorist financing, and financing of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
The signed joint document on cooperation, in particular, fixed procedures for:
exchanging information on financial transactions that may be related to suspicion of the legalization of proceeds from crime, terrorist financing and financing of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction;
protecting such information, its dissemination, and submission to the relevant competent authorities.
The Head of the SFMS Igor CHERKASKYI emphasized: "The signing of the Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation with the FIU of the Republic of Austria is an illustrative example of enhancing cooperation of the SFMS with European partners. Concluding Memoranda of cooperation by Ukraine contributes to strengthening the global efforts of the international community in the area of counteraction to money laundering, terrorist financing and financing of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction".
For the present moment, the SFMS has concluded 77 international agreements on cooperation with financial intelligence units of foreign countries.
