The FATF noted in 2012 that Iraq is one of the countries that did not implement the international recommendations in this area. The Central Bank has formed a team representing a large number of institutions, notably the Supreme Judicial Council to work on implementing and implementing FATF recommendations.

“Work has already been done on this aspect, and a range of professions have already been included, such as heads of state or government, senior politicians, senior judges, senior military personnel, senior executives of institutions, state companies and others,” he said.

 “The instructions for people with risk stipulated that financial institutions and banks must, according to the statement of the Central Bank, open an account for them to verify their original official documents and ascertain the nature of the financial transaction and the purpose of it and the real beneficiary of it and the nature of the relationship between the parties to the financial deal, .

He added that “in case of any suspicion in dealing with the bank or financial institution to immediately report the  suspicious transaction and stop before completion and custody of the financial assets of the client.”

The judge concluded that “the reason for the inclusion of some professions on the list of risks in the field of money laundering and the financing of terrorism is that the owners are influential and decision-makers and can through their functions to acquire large funds without the right to monitor their accounts and audit to prevent the process of embezzlement Mali Or funding for terrorism. “
