Common Law Model on Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Combating the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) Laws

In view of the changing global security scenario and novel strategies adopted by terrorists from time to time, the Commonwealth Secretariat, jointly with the UNODC, IMF and the World Bank, is currently drafting model legislative provisions on Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism. In October 2004 work began on drafting a model law for common law jurisdictions that reflects the revised Recommendations (40+9) of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). In January 2005 a drafting group was formed consisting of legal, law enforcement, and financial sector experts from the participating institutions with assistance from legal practitioners in the United Kingdom.
