Fiji will be assessed on how well it is complying with the international anti-money laundering standards in October.
Some things Fiji will be assessed on include anti-money laundering laws, policies, coordination, powers of the law enforcement authorities, preventative measures for bank and other financial institutions, convictions and confiscation of proceeds of crime.
Financial Intelligence Unit Director Razim Buksh says the mutual evaluation will be very intensive and will see the involvement of both the public and private sector agencies.
