A delegation of two representatives of Senegal’s CENTIF came to Monaco on October 11 and 12 to learn from their counterparts at SICCFIN about techniques to help in the fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism.

The officials of the Senegalese Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) were able to discuss a number of issues with specialised SICCFIN agents, including the topics of investigations and international judicial cooperation. Meetings also involved the Directorate of Judicial Services, in particular the Prosecutor General’s Office.

In addition, the visit was aimed at strengthening existing links between the two FIUs. Requests for visits to Monaco from other FIUs testify to the recognition of SICCFIN’s quality of the work carried out by its agents and the Principality’s commitment to the fight against the scourge of money laundering.

Two years ago, SICCFIN  received a delegation from the CENTIF of Côte d’Ivoire, and another from Niger’s CENTIF representatives.
