Dubai hosts anti-money laundering session
Dubai, April 23, 2012
Dubai Judicial Institute (DJI) is organising an anti-money laundering (AML) training session for senior Pakistani government officials, under the supervision of leading professionals and experts from the UAE, US and Pakistan.
A leading centre for legal studies and judicial training in Dubai and a member of the General Network for Government Communication, DJI said the five-day training session is a testament to the international community’s confidence in DJI’s role as a regional and international hub for legal and judicial excellence.
It further demonstrates the solid relation between DJI and the US Embassy, reaffirming their joint efforts to create channels for sharing knowledge, expertise and best international practices, said a statement from the institute.
The session attracted 30 participants from Pakistan, including representatives from the Ministry of Finance, Central Bank, Parliament, National Accountability Bureau, Anti Narcotics Force and Public Prosecution who learnt about the various global standards besides assessing the existing practices and exchange experiences in dealing with money laundering.
Hosting the AML training session underlines the UAE’s status as a leading hub for legal, humanitarian, social, development, cultural, economic and investment affairs, said a senior official.
“Held in collaboration with the US Embassy, the AML training session is very important as it acts as an interactive platform to look into local and international experiences and discuss the AML system application challenges,” remarked Dr Jamal Hussein Al Sumaiti, the DJI director general.
'DJI is committed to organizing purpose-built initiatives that support our vision towards best judicial practices, transparency and an improved judicial system for the UAE’s legal and judicial community,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
