Associates Andreas Charalambides and Christia-Lydia Kastellani participated in the seminar for law professionals, concerning the application of the legal framework on anti-money laundering (AML). The seminar was organised by the Cyprus Bar Association, in association with MOKAS, the Unit for Combating Money Laundering in Cyprus and CiSero Compliance Services.
The objective of the seminar was to inform and educate law professionals in Cyprus on legal and practical issues related to AML and to assist them in their efforts in combating the same by establishing, implementing and maintaining effective policies and procedures of know-your-client (KYC) and customer due diligence measures. The seminar also focused on the implementation in practice of MOKAS’ newly acquired system named “goAML”, aimed at law firms as well as banking institutions and other organisations, which is being introduced to facilitate the effective reporting of suspicious transactions or activities to the Unit electronically.
