French Regulator Assesses Record Fine Against Western Union for AML Lapses

Extrait de l'article (en anglais) :

"The unprecedented penalty against Western Union is motivated by regulatory efforts to address the vulnerability of MSBs to terrorist financiers and quash the perception that France is soft on corruption, Florence Schlegel, an attorney with Simon Associes in Paris, said.

Global advocacy group Transparency International currently ranks France’s efforts on corruption behind those of 22 other nations, including the United Arab Emirates and Estonia.

That’s why the French authorities consider it high time to change and to be respected abroad,” Schlegel said."
