Sudan and Financial Crime: Assessing the Current State of Affairs
April 17, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 pm
Joshua White, Director for Policy and Analysis at The Sentry, will be the featured speaker at a briefing hosted by the Royal United Services Institute’s Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies. Based on The Sentry’s latest alert (Sudan’s Anti-Corruption Whitewash: The Bashir Regime’s Hollow Commitment to Combating Illicit Finance), the briefing will focus on the state of current efforts in Sudan to sufficiently combat money laundering and terrorist financing at a time when Khartoum is attempting to expand its access to the international system. The failure to address these financial crime challenges presents risks for international financial institutions and businesses operating in Sudan and exacerbates the perpetuation of corruption. Attendance is by invitation only.
