In the period from December 2020 until May 2020 Transparency International- Macedonia implemented the project “Combating Illicit Financial Flows, “How the Anti Money Laundering Regulations Respect the Data Protection”. The project objective was to provide assessment of the national legal and institutional approximation of each country’s legislation with the 4th (1) and 5th (2) European Union AML Directives. This is the first regional project on Anti Money Laundering VS Data Protection conducted between the four countries: North Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro.
The project team was composed of two experts from each one of the four countries, one reflecting on Anti Money Laundering, and another reflecting on Data Protection provisions. The experts analyzed the existing anti-money laundering practices in the four countries, and where possible, uncover the failures to address the issue of Data Protection both in the regulation and in practice.
A final report that encompass information on how the Anti-Money Laundering/ Combating Financial Terrorism VS Data Protection is organized across the region was developed and it will be presented during this event.
The event will be held on 3rd March 2022 at 11.00 CET.
