The OSCE Mission to Serbia requires the services of one international expert, with experience in investigating and prosecuting money laundering, economic crime and terrorism financing, to design and deliver a Train-the-Trainers (ToT) course on “Fighting Money Laundering and Countering Terrorism Financing”, to be delivered in Belgrade to 15 police investigators in line with the requirements outlined below.
In April 2016, the MONEYVAL Committee assessed that the Serbian system was inefficient in suppressing money laundering and terrorism financing and insufficiently harmonised with international standards. MONEYVAL placed Serbia under increased monitoring and set a deadline of September 2017 for Serbia to demonstrate improvement. Since Serbia showed no improvement by the deadline, MONEYVAL issued a new deadline of September 2018 for Serbia to fulfil all recommendations for technical compliance and to show significant progress in the effectiveness of the system.
The Government of the Republic of Serbia has adopted an Action Plan to implement MONEYVAL's recommendations. Responsible authorities under this Action Plan are the Ministry of Finance (through the Administration for the Prevention of Money Laundering, the Tax Administration and the Customs Administration); the Ministry of Justice; the Ministry of Interior; the Ministry of Defence; the Ministry of Foreign affairs; the Ministry of Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications; the Ministry of Economy; the Ministry of Public Administration and Local Self-Government; the Republic Public Prosecutors Office; the Security Information Agency; the Anti-Corruption Agency; the Business Registry Agency; the National Bank; the Serbian Central Securities Depository and Clearing house; and the Supreme Court of Cassation.
In addition to the OSCE Mission to Serbia’s wider effort to assist the Serbian Ministry of Interior (MoI) in fighting money laundering and enhancing capacity to implement the Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF) recommendations regarding anti-money laundering (AML) and counter-terrorism financing (CFT), the Mission plans to assist the MoI in implementing activities from the Action Plan in order to fulfil all MONEYVAL recommendations and to prepare the MoI for applying the provisions of the 4th Anti-Money Laundering Directive. This Directive came into effect in June 2015, thereby creating an obligation to become compliant by 26 June 2017.
The Mission will support the development and delivery of curricula for a Train-the-Trainers (ToT) course on “Fighting Money Laundering and Countering Terrorism Financing” for 15 police investigators who will then transfer their knowledge to their colleagues. The MoI will adopt the curricula as their official specialized training course on “Fighting Money Laundering and Countering Terrorism Financing” for future training.
