Serbia: International Expert on Drafting Typologies of Politically Exposed Persons

Organization: UN Development Programme
Country: Serbia
Closing date: 17 Aug 2017

The project Support to Anti-Corruption Efforts in Kosovo (SAEK II) is expected to have a positive impact on reducing the level of corruption in Kosovo by strengthening monitoring and oversight mechanisms of institutions to perform in an efficient, transparent, accountable, and gender sensitive manner.

Kosovo’s anti – corruption institutions, in particular corruption suppression bodies such as prosecution services, law enforcement agencies and the Financial Intelligence Unit, would benefit from increased capacities to detect, investigate and prosecute corruption offenses. The FIU relies on private sector reporting entities’ Suspicious Transaction Reports (STRs) and Suspicious Activity Reports (SARS) to fulfil its mandate of gathering information on cases of money laundering and terrorist financing.

to The project will expand its support to the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) through support to activities pertaining to money laundering and counter financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) and corruption offenses, through sectoral risk assessments, capacity building and drafting of typologies. In 2014, the Kosovo FIU published a Typologies of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing report. Since this time, the Law on AML/CFT has been amended to include provisions on monitoring domestic Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), which is in accordance with the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) recommendations. Given the need to illustrate how the newly introduced compliance measures are functioning and uncovered alleged cases of corruption and money laundering, the project will support the development of the first ever Typologies of Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) in Kosovo.
