The beginning of a new era in the prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing in Greece was marked over the last three years, Finance Minister Christos Staikouras said at an event held in the context of the 86th Thessaloniki International Fair on Saturday.

Staikouras was speaking at an event for the Real Beneficiaries Register, which helps auditing authorities trace the thread of illegal financial activities in Greece, and seek the persons who own companies that benefit from such activities.

The government, he added, undertook a total of nine initiatives and launched new goals and actions with measurable results in this direction.

Among those is incorporating into Greek law the fifth EU directive on the fight against undeclared money and the financing of terrorism; the amendment of law 4557 of 2018, which forces certain businesses to register in the Real Beneficiaries Register; setting up the finance ministry’s Special  Secretariat for Financial & Economic Crime Unit (SDOE) and modifying fines thereof; publishing a national list of those who exercised or exercise an important public function; submitting, for the first time, a report on money laundering and terrorist financing for the years 2021 and 2022 to the parliament’s Committee on Institutions & Transparency; improving cooperation with all competent agencies to update the national risk assessment report on money laundering and terrorist financing based on a methodological tool provided by the World Bank.
