Iran approves bill to combat money laundering to facilitate foreign trade


Central Bank of Iran
 Arab and international

TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran’s Expediency Council approved an anti-money laundering bill on Saturday in a major step toward reforms that would make Iran committed to international norms and facilitate foreign trade in the face of US sanctions, state media said.

Iran has been trying to apply the criteria established by the FATF, an international body to combat money laundering and counter terrorism financing.

Foreign companies say Iran’s commitment to the FATF standards and blacklisting of the organization are necessary to increase its investment, especially after the re-imposition of US sanctions on Tehran.

Iran’s hardliners, however, have opposed passage of legislation allowing compliance with the FATF criteria, saying it could disrupt Iran’s financial support to allies such as Hezbollah, which the United States lists as terrorism.

Last year parliament passed a bill against money laundering, one of four amendments Iran needs to meet the requirements of FATF. But the Guardian Council rejected him saying it was against Islam and the constitution.

The Islamic Republic of Iran (IRNA) news agency quoted a member of the Expediency Discernment Council as saying that the council, on resolving disputes between parliament and the Guardian Council, had approved the bill with some amendments.

The move follows the appointment of Ayatollah Sadiq Larijani, head of the judiciary, last week as head of the Expediency Council. A brother of Ali Larijani, speaker of parliament.

Seven months after he vehemently rejected parliament’s efforts to adopt FATF and other international money-laundering agreements, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei appears to be beginning to accept reforms in a shift experts say is aimed at preventing the collapse of the country’s economy.

In recent months, cities have seen demonstrations, with factory workers, teachers, truck drivers and farmers protesting economic difficulties. The sanctions have led to a fall in the value of the Iranian riyal and fourfold annual inflation rates to about 40 percent in November.

US President Donald Trump withdrew from a nuclear deal with Iran last year and re-imposed sanctions on the energy sector and the banking sector in the hope of curbing Tehran’s nuclear and missile programs and countering its growing influence in the Middle East.

The European countries that have signed the nuclear deal are still committed to it and are seeking to launch a mechanism that is described as having a special purpose in order to avoid the US financial system by using an EU framework to conduct trade with Iran.

The Director-General of the Strategic Council for External Relations, an advisory council founded by Khamenei, expressed his support for the relevant draft laws on Friday.

“It is better to complete FATF and anti-terrorist financing systems as soon as possible so that the Europeans do not have an excuse not to implement the (special-purpose) mechanism,” Abdul Rida Faraji was quoted by the semi-official ISNA news agency as saying.
