Annual Report 2014 Financial Intelligence Unit (MOT) Curacao


Pursuant to article 3 section i, of the National Ordinance on Reporting Unusual Transactions, I hereby respectfully submit the Annual Report and Statistics of the Unusual Transaction Reporting Center of Curaçao (in Dutch: Meldpunt Ongebruikelijke Transacties, MOT) for the year 2014 to the Minister of Finance, with notification to the Minister of Justice.

This report details our activities and our contributions in the fight against money laundering and terrorism financing during the period of January 1st, 2014 to December 31st, 2014.

The year 2014 was very challenging for the Reporting Center. On January 1st, 2014 the Former Head of the Reporting Center resigned. During this year the Reporting Center was managed by the Acting Head to guarantee the continuous functioning of the Reporting Center. On May 1st, 2015, I assumed the position of Head of the Reporting Center.

This report I submit herewith is mostly structured on the basis of the Annual Report 2012, as was prepared by the former Acting Head.
The year 2014 was marked by the start of the recruitment procedure for new FIU personnel. Due to understaffing the Reporting Center received one-time technical assistance from FIU - the Netherlands to create possibilities for the Reporting Center to maximize its output with limited resources. For this cooperation we are still very grateful to FIU- the Netherlands. Furthermore, the Supervision Department also received assistance by the Dutch “Bureau Financieel Toezicht” in devising a policy on imposing sanctions for the non-financial sector.
