The Central Bank of the UAE (CBUAE) imposed on April 18, 2021, a financial sanction on an exchange house operating in the UAE, pursuant to Article 14 of the Federal Decree-law No. (20) of 2018 on Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism and Financing of Illegal Organisations.
CBUAE’s examination findings revealed that the exchange house had a weak compliance framework to prevent money laundering and financing of terrorism.
