Anti Money Laundering Investigations Unit (AMLIU)
The department implements the Commission’s mandate with regard to the prohibition and prevention of money laundering. Money laundering has increasingly become rife in Zambia and the Commission through the Anti-Money Laundering Investigations Unit (AMLIU) has stepped up its operations to curb the ever-increasing number of suspicious transaction reports.
The Unit enforces Act 14 of 2001 as amended by Act 44 of 2010 and works in close collaboration with various stakeholders such as financial institutions, the Bank of Zambia, security agencies and all relevant government, quasi-government and non-government organisations. The Unit also offers money laundering and sensitisation programmes to the public.
