Haiti - Economy : Haiti temporarily escapes financial sanctions
At the end of its plenary meeting last week, the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force (CFATF) recognized the efforts made by Haiti through the publication of two important laws and decided to postpone until its next meeting in 2017, the decisions to be taken on Haiti in the light of the evolution of the efforts of the Haitian government, which gives Haiti a reprieve from possible sanctions.

Note from CFATF :
"At the CFATF Plenary in November 2016, Haiti demonstrated that sufficient progress has been made through: the amended Law Sanctioning Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (LSMLTF) by the Chamber of Deputies on September 9th, 2016 and by the Senate on September 28th, 2016; the enactment of the new UCREF law seeking to establish the l’Unité Centrale de Renseignements Financiers (Central Financial Intelligence Unit) (UCREF) as an autonomous administrative financial intelligence unit; and the publication in the National Gazette of the Decree establishing procedures for the implementation of measures aimed at freezing funds and other assets connected with the financing of terrorism.

Haiti is encouraged to continue the reform process including the passage of the legislative framework and continue addressing its AML/CFT deficiencies.

Haiti and the CFATF should continue to work together to ensure that Haiti’s reform process is completed, by addressing its remaining deficiencies and continue implementing its Action Plan."


In addition to these two laws, the Haitian Parliament must, among other things, ratify the amended Penal Code and the Executive must publish these texts in the official gazette and implement measures within the framework of these laws to prevent Haiti falls under the sanction of the CFAFG.
