In collaboration with the Bahraini Ministry of Social Development, MENAFATF held a workshop on “protecting NPOs against misuse in ML/TF operations” on 26 and 27 May 2012 in Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain.

The workshop was inaugurated by Mr. Adel Al Qulish, MENAFATF Executive Secretary and Mrs. Hanan Mohamed Kamal, Undersecretary for Social Development in Bahrain, and Mr. Abdul Rahman Mohamed Al Baker, Executive Director of Financial Institutions Supervision at the Central Bank of Bahrain.

The workshop was beneficial for around 150 socities of the private sector in Bahrain whereby it aimed at increasing the awareness and identifying the risks of misusing NPOs in ML/TF operations as well as increasing comprehensive awareness of the most recent international standards related to protecting such sector against misuse in ML/TF operations.

This workshop comes at a significant phase following the spread of the NPOs in the region, which inevitably forces the competent authorities to improve the level of the sector, increase the awareness and reinforce the supervision techniques of the concerned entities in this field.
