Uruguay Hosts Money Laundering Training Seminar

MONTEVIDEO – International experts on fighting money laundering will train staff in Montevideo working in casinos and real estate, among other businesses, to strengthen efforts to curtail the financing of terrorism, the Uruguayan Anti-Money Laundering Secretariat said.

The training seminar, which starts on Wednesday and runs until Friday, will cover different types of asset laundering operations and good practices developed in countries like Britain, whose foreign ministry is funding the program, the secretariat said in a statement.

The course’s main goal is to boost Uruguay’s efforts “to incorporate international good practices in non-financial activities and professions into its national system to fight against these crimes,” the secretariat said.

The sectors include casinos, real estate agencies, notaries, auction houses and free trade zones, among others.

Alejandro Montesdeoca, an expert from the London-based International Governance and Risk Institute, or GovRisk, and Bernardo Antonio Machado, chief of Brazil’s Financial Activities Regulation Council, are the trainers.
