AML refers to laws, regulations, and procedures intended to prevent criminals from disguising illegally obtained funds as legitimate income. Even though anti-money laundering laws cover a limited range of transactions and criminal behavior, their implications are vast.
The minister of justice issued ministerial orders in November 2020 to establish money laundering courts in Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain and Fujairah within the framework of the federal judiciary.
Each court will have major, minor and appeals circuits for hearing these types of crimes.
All businesses must register with the Financial Intelligence Unit (go AML) and also enroll themselves on the Committee for Commodities Subject to Import and Export Control system (Automatic Reporting System for Sanctions List).
Once the registration is complete, the business must take other AML and CFT measures as required by degree law.
