‘US support to tackle money laundering to continue’

UNB, Dhaka

US Ambassador Earl Miller yesterday said his country is committed to supporting Bangladesh in its efforts to tackle money laundering, terrorism financing, and strengthening the rule of law. "We share a common goal of preventing terrorism by identifying and choking off financial support for terrorists and their organisations," he said while inaugurating a workshop - 'Investigating and Prosecuting Financial Crimes' - at a hotel in the capital.

The function was jointly organised by Bangladesh Financial Intelligence Unit (BFIU), the United States Department of Justice's National Advocacy Center, and the Los Angeles and Miami Divisions of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. BFIU chief Abu Hena Mohammad Razee Hassan also spoke at the programme.

Officials from the Ministry of Law, Justice, and Parliamentary Affairs, BFIU, Anti-Corruption Commission, National Board of Revenue, Criminal Investigation Department, Department of Narcotics Control, Attorney General's Office, and Customs Intelligence and Investigation Directorate participated in the workshop.

Ambassador Miller said the US Embassy, through the Department of Justice's Office of Prosecutorial Development, Assistance and Training (OPDAT) and the State Department, has partnered with Bangladeshi colleagues to provide programmes like this since 2005. He said stopping the flow of money to terrorists takes a regional and international effort.

"So it's fitting we hold this workshop, in Bangladesh, the co-chair of the Asia Pacific Group for Money Laundering for the 2018-2020 term," he said.
