CFT, Palermo bills under review by Joint EC commission

IRNA – A member of the Expediency Council on approving or rejecting the bills of the two CFT and Palermo conventions in the Expediency Council, noted that the two bills are being reviewed by the Joint Commission of the Expediency Council (EC).

Speaking to IRNA on Sunday, Majid Ansari noted that the remaining bills of the Special Financial Action Task Force (FATF) are under review, and stated that he has no specific predictions whether the CFT and Palermo conventions are approved or rejected.

He added that the Joint Commission on EC has had meetings in the past months and will have meetings in the coming days.

According to IRNA, the FATF has so far given Iran six times the opportunity to fully join the FATF and has announced that it will give Iran a deadline of 4 months to finalize and approve the bills, and will in no way be given the opportunity.
