Anti-Money Laundering Policy

Money Laundering is the process utilized by criminal elements as a method of concealing the true origin and ownership of the proceeds of illegal activities. The phrase ‘money laundering’ covers all methods used to change the identity of illegally obtained money so that it can be used for legitimate purposes.

Money laundering is not restricted to the proceeds of drug trafficking. It includes proceeds from other criminal activities such as armed robbery, tax evasion, smuggling, prostitution, terrorism, arms dealing, fraud, forgery and counterfeiting, bribery and corruption.

Money laundering is a major threat to financial institutions and the economic stability of entire countries. Governments worldwide have introduced legislation to prevent it, including specific money laundering offences and legally imposed requirements on institutions operating in their jurisdictions.

The United Kingdom Government, using the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (PoCA), the Terrorism Act 2000 (TA00) and the Money Laundering Regulations 2007, has written strict laws and regulations to help prevent money laundering activities

CEC has a comprehensive compliance program within its organization to ensure compliance with government rules and regulations. We do not want CEC international money transfer services to be used for illegal money laundering activities. It is our policy that we follow both the letter and the spirit of the law and the regulations.
