Ghana officially removed from EU’s list of high risk money laundering & terrorist financing countries-Prez
Ghana has officially been removed from EU’s list of high risk money laundering and terrorist financing countries, President Akufo-Addo has revealed.
He explained that Ghana was removed after the country enacted various legislations to criminalize money laundering and fight the crime.
The President said was removed after the global watchdog on money laundering and terrorist financing got satisfied that Ghana had adequately strengthened its regime against the two practices.
He revealed this at a meeting with Hungarian President, János Áder-who is currently on a state visit in Ghana- at the Jubilee House,
“We received a notification from the European Commission through the intermediary of the commissioner for financial services, financial stability and capital markets union, Mairead McGuinness that Ghana after the pursuit of some rigorous reforms has now been formally removed from the grey list of high risk countries in money laundering activities,” he said.
