格恩西島金融犯罪調查部門的法律權力

新法設立了經濟和金融犯罪局局長辦公室,國家說。

它還明確了金融情報機構(FIU)在處理洗錢和資助恐怖主義方面的作用,它補充說。

政府說,自2021年6月以來,經濟和金融犯罪局一直根據行政規定運作,但新法律明確了其職能。

EFCB局長凱文-戴維斯說,該局的新法律地位是 "一個非常重要的里程碑",因為它 "規定並澄清了其作為 "指定調查機構 "的責任。

他補充說:"至關重要的是,它為獲得廣泛的調查權力和法律補救措施做出了規定,如果我們要成功地應對轄區所面臨的金融風險和威脅,這一點至關重要。"

EFCB還將幫助該島 "儘可能地準備好 "迎接歐洲委員會監督機構MoneyVal即將進行的檢查。

The new law has established the Office of the Director of the Economic & Financial Crime Bureau (EFCB), the States said.

It also clarified the role of the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) to tackle money laundering and terrorism financing, it added.

The EFCB has been operating since June 2021 under administrative provisions, but the new law provided clarity around its functions, the government said.

EFCB director Kevin Davis said the bureau's new legal status was "a very important milestone" as it "set out and clarified its responsibilities" as a "designated investigative authority".

He added: "Crucially, it makes provision for accessing a wide range of investigative powers and legal remedies that are vital if we are to successfully respond to the financial risks and threats faced by the bailiwick."

The EFCB will also help the island be "as prepared as it can be" for a forthcoming inspection by MoneyVal - the monitoring body of the Council of Europe.
