On November 21st, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network issued two advisories on the money laundering and financing of terrorism risks associated with jurisdictions identified by the Financial Action Task Force as having strategic deficiencies in their anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing regimes, for which each jurisdiction has provided a high-level political commitment to address the strategic AML/CFT deficiencies. Advisory FIN-2012-A011 also includes information on the AML/CFT improvements made by Trinidad and Tobago and their subsequent removal from the FATF review process. Separately, FinCEN issued advisory, FIN-2012-A012, which addresses a FATF document identifying jurisdictions with strategic AML/CFT deficiencies that have either not made sufficient progress, not provided a political commitment to address AML/CFT deficiencies, or are subject to FATF's call for countermeasures.
