It is a well-known fact that money laundering, if left unchecked can devastate the economy of any given country and can further compromise on its security without foregoing other social consequences.
In line with our mandate of preventing money laundering activities and illegal cultivation, production, trafficking and abuse of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances which are mostly predicate offences to money laundering, the Commission has deliberately constituted a special unit that ensures an efficient Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Operations service delivery.
The team conducts AML investigations on behalf of the Commission with vested powers from the Republican President. The team also receives complaints and information from the members of the public on any suspected cases of money laundering, which is reviewed and actions are taken depending on the facts established in the preliminary investigations.
This special unit has presence in all the ten (10) provinces of the country where members of the public can easily visit the DEC offices to access this service, or better still call at their own convenience.
AML investigations operations are conducted both in public and private institutions and the unit collaborates with various stakeholders when conducting such operations.
