Corruption undermines the rule of law, good governance, and sustainable growth and development. Most countries have prohibited all forms of corruption, yet corruption persists due largely to a lack of appropriate strategies and structures to inhibit it. Such strategies include effective and comprehensive legal frameworks to prevent, punish and take the profit out of corruption.

The Common Law Legal Systems Model Legislative Provisions aims to enable Commonwealth countries to evaluate measures that can be incorporated into domestic law to prevent, detect, and effectively sanction money laundering and terrorism financing and to recover the proceeds of crime.

Sanctions

These model provisions do not attempt to provide a single model for the implementation of the UN Al-Qaida and 1988 sanctions regimes. Instead they provide guidance on key requirements that UN Member States may wish to consider when designing their national framework for implementing the two UN sanctions regimes. They do not purport to override national authorities.
