Leader allows Majlis to discuss FATF bills

Leader allows Majlis to discuss FATF bills
IRAN  - Islamic Republic of Iran’s Supreme Leader confirmed his agreement with the bills to be discussed in the parliament in response to the Majlis query about how to deal with the FATF bills.

Ayatollah Khamenei's response was read out to the Majlis open session on Sunday when the parliamentarians were reviewing the details of the bill on the joining of Iran to Combating the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) convention, according to IRNA.

The four bills include reform in the money-laundering rule, change in the funding terrorism law, the joining of Iran to CFT and the joining of the country to the Palermo Convention.

According to UNODC, the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, adopted by General Assembly resolution 55/25 of 15 November 2000, is the main international instrument in the fight against transnational organized crime. It opened for signature by Member States at a High-level Political Conference convened for that purpose in Palermo, Italy, on 12-15 December 2000 and entered into force on 29 September 2003.

In its recent session, FATF has given a year as another chance to Iran to make changes in its financial activities as the country has already been transparent in its related commitments, IRNA added.
