FIA, AGA unite to combat transnational crimes

Some delegates to the event

Members of the National Counter Terrorism Panel have undergone an intensive training in Lilongwe with an aim of helping to curb cases of money laundering and terrorism financing.

The membership was drawn from the Malawi Defence Force – MDF, the National Intelligence Service – NIS as well as the Financial Intelligence Authority – FIA among other stakeholders.

The panel’s chairperson who is also the director general of the NIS Dokani Ngwira pointed out that the country remains at high risk due to continuing cases of human trafficking, money laundering as well as a transit for wildlife crimes.

“These crimes undermine the rule of law and good governance, leading to financial and economic instability, hence the need to develop innovative ways of combating them” Ngwira said.

On his part, Attorney General Alliance country coordinator Gift Carolyne Chikwawa expressed hope that the coordination which is there among member countries in the African region will help to nip money laundering in the bud.

Chikwakwa added that; “Attorney General Alliance will continue working with partner agencies and organisations to end human trafficking, money laundering, terrorism financing, among other vices.”

The workshop was organised and funded by the Financial Intelligence Authority in partnership with Attorney General Alliance, Africa.
