FOREWORD

The Financial Intelligence Centre (the Centre) strengthened its operational capabilities and stakeholder outreach in 2017, with special focus given to private sector entities exposed to Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (ML/TF) risks. The Centre also continued to support law enforcement and national security partners in our shared objective of protecting the Zambian community from crimes associated with money laundering and terrorism financing.

In 2017, the Centre also took on the role of “Supervisor of Last Resort” for reporting entities that presently do not have a clearly laid down legal framework for monitoring and regulating their responsibilities for reporting ML/TF activities, such as: Casinos, Motor Vehicle Dealers and Real Estate Agencies. This followed the amendment of the Financial Intelligence Act No. 4 of 2016. Another significant development was the incorporation by the Centre of a number of recommendations of the National Risk Assessment on ML/TF conducted in 2016.

Editor’s Note

I am delighted to introduce this first edition of the Caritas Zambia bulletin, a publication that keeps you in touch with news and developments which relate to Caritas Zambia and its work. This particular edition is an exciting one for us as it brings a new dawn in that 2018 marks the beginning of our new strategic plan for the next five (5) years.

Caritas Zambia acknowledges the crucial role of the Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops, who support its work and ensure the success of all its focus areas. 2018 is a special year for Caritas Zambia as it marks the beginning of a new strategic plan (2018 – 2022). The Caritas Zambia strategic plan, through the support of the Conference and the participation of our diocesan partners, was developed in line with the Vision and Mission of the Conference. As we begin this year and this new Strategic Plan, Caritas Zambia is focusing on issues that are not only relevant at the National level, but also at the local community level.
