CARICOM heads to discuss Guyana's non-passage of AML-CFT bill
Published on March 11, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

KINGSTOWN, St Vincent (GINA) -- The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) said it is extremely worried over the non-passage of the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (Amendment) Bill in Guyana and has formally written expressing the Community’s deep concern at the wider implications for the region.

In a letter dated March 7, 2014, to Guyana’s President Donald Ramotar, Barbados Prime Minister Freundel Stuart said, “Without any doubt, this situation and the threatened action by CFATF [Caribbean Financial Action Task Force] will affect Guyana and the entire Caribbean region, and will negatively impact the well-being of our people.”

“I trust that during our inter-sessional meeting we will be able to discuss this matter in caucus, and see what other action we can take as a group to assist Guyana at this juncture,” Stuart added.
