Haiti - FLASH : U.S. threat on money transfers to Haiti...
Friday, following the American authorities decision to halt any money transfers to Haiti from November 2016 if corrective measures are not taken on money laundering, the Ministry of Justice organized in conjunction with the Bank of the Republic of Haiti a panel meeting on the "economic and financial challenges against the money laundering and terrorist financing" in order to assess the risks faced by Haiti.

Camille Junior Edouard, the Minister of Justice has tried to reassure the population and called the stakeholders to action by asserting "We will do everything in our power to ensure that the nation does not have to pay this heavy burden and we call on the responsibility of all actors in economic and judicial system in this battle against the scourge of money laundering."

To provide a concrete response to the threats facing in the future of the Haitian banking sector, the Minister Edouard goes into overdrive to prevent the execution of such a decision where the Haitian banks will no longer be able to make money transfers with their US correspondent banks. In addition, of correspondence addressed to the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force, he announced the publication of the Law of 2013 on money laundering, in the shortest time and the establishment of a unit of Statistics at the Ministry of Justice and Public Security to Port-au-Prince to work on this dossier.

An approach that aims to avoid a panic among bankers and reassure the economic forum of the private sector. The Minister of Justice is confident that the publication of the law on money laundering translate the will of the Haitian government to fight against tax evasion, the controls anti-laundering of capital.
