Today FinCEN released an advisory to financial institutions regarding the Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF) updated list of jurisdictions with strategic anti-money laundering/counter-terrorist financing (AML/CFT) deficiencies.  The FATF has recognized that Indonesia has made progress in substantially or largely addressing its FATF action plan, and has consequently removed Indonesia from the "FATF Public Statement" and included it in its “Improving Global AML/CFT Compliance: On-going Process" document. Additionally, due to their significant progress in establishing the legal and regulatory framework to addressing all or nearly all of their strategic technical AML/CFT deficiencies on a technical level, Albania, Cambodia, Kuwait, Namibia, Nicaragua, Pakistan, and Zimbabwe have been removed from the FATF listing and monitoring process.
