FATF recognizes France’s effectiveness in the fight against financial crime

The International Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has just published its evaluation report of the French system for the fight against money laundering, le financement du terrorisme et de la prolifération (LBC-FT). The excellent results obtained place France at the forefront of countries effectively combating financial crime.

France is assessed as very effective in the investigation and prosecution of terrorist financing, the confiscation of criminal assets and international cooperation. The FATF particularly praised France’s excellent results in the fight against the financing of terrorism, which has been made a national priority since the attacks of 2015 and whose mobilization and actions are considered to be very effective.
