1. PREAMBLE

We the leaders of the three Church Mother Bodies in Zambia, namely: the Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ), the Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia (EFZ) and the Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops (ZCCB), greet you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

As we embark on this difficult journey of leading the entire nation into a process of national dialogue and reconciliation, we are compelled by the love of Christ (2 Cor. 5:14) to speak to you on critical matters relating to the preparation and management of the much talked about national dialogue and reconciliation process in our country. For us, every effort that promotes a non-violent method of transforming conflicts such as dialogue is a moment of grace and an opportunity for self-appraisal as a nation and a call for the conversion of hearts.

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.
