Duties and Responsibilities

The effectiveness and compliance of Cabo Verde’s anti-money laundering and terrorist financing system with international standards were assessed in 2017. In that year, the National Assessment of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Risks was carried out. Its conclusions allowed the preparation of an action plan (2018-2019) aimed at addressing the weaknesses identified.

Moreover, given that Cabo Verde is a member of the Inter-Governmental Action Group against Money Laundering in West Africa (GIABA), the second Mutual Evaluation was conducted in 2017 with the purpose of analysing the level of compliance with the FATF 40 Recommendations and the level of effectiveness of its system for the prevention and repression of money laundering and financing of terrorism in accordance with the eleven Immediate Results. Following the 2017 assessment in Cabo Verde, the Mutual Evaluation Report was adopted by GIABA in May 2019.

Among the recommendations incorporated in the Mutual Evaluation Report for the strengthening of the country’s system, the following stands out: « Although Cabo Verde refers to a National Internal Security and Citizenship Programme targeting terrorist financing, the country does not have a National Strategy document to prevent and combat money laundering and proliferation financing. »

Therefore, in the framework of UNODC´s global mandate, an Assessment of the Risks and Vulnerabilities of Money Laundering and Corruption was carried out in the country in 2021, from which it emerged that, although Cabo Verde reflects in its legal and institutional framework great compliance with the relevant international instruments, standards and best practices, shortcomings persist with regard to technical compliance and effectiveness in the implementation of the obligations assumed by the Member State.

In line with the above and within the framework of the short-term recommendations issued in the report of the aforementioned risk assessment, it was envisaged to carry out the present initiative, the preparation of the National Strategy to Combat Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing.
