The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has agreed to remove Thailand from its list of nations identified as Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Combating the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) deficient.
Justice Minister Police General Pracha Promnok indicated that Thailand is no longer on the FATF’s blacklist, given its progress in addressing the AML/CFT deficiencies.
In addition, the United Nations (UN) has sent a list of 291 suspects whom it believes, have been involved in terrorist activities to the Anti-Money Laundering Office (AMLO).
The list consists of 227 suspected individuals and 64 companies, all of whom are foreign nationals and have no linkage with the southern unrest, the minister said. He added the names could be found on the AMLO website at www.amlo.go.th
