FATF to hold special meeting on terrorist financing

Paris, 10 December - The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is holding a special meeting in Paris on 12-14 December to discuss actions jurisdictions are taking, and need to take, to combat the financing of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and broader opportunities to strengthen global efforts to combat the financing of terrorism.  This will include a special meeting of operational experts from FATF member jurisdictions and the Egmont Group of Financial Intelligence Units. 

These three days of meetings will bring together delegates representing the FATF global network, which today extends to some 200 jurisdictions, and operational experts involved in detecting, preventing and disrupting terrorism and terrorist financing.  

For further questions, journalists are invited to contact Alexandra.wijmenga-daniel@fatf-gafi.org (tel.: +33 1 45 24 95 23).
