Technical assistance to Uganda's Financial Intelligence Unit
AML/CFT experts of the International Centre for Asset Recovery (ICAR) are providing technical assistance and guidance to the Financial Intelligence Authority (FIA) of the Republic of Uganda with a view to establishing and operationalising an effective financial intelligence unit.
The assistance to the FIA is a key& component of the five-year multi-component anti-corruption programme in Uganda in which the Basel Institute is involved in together with Adam Smith International (ASI), Integrity Action and other expert organisations. The "Strengthening Uganda's Anti-Corruption and Accountability Regime Anti-Corruption Chain" (in short SUGAR) programme commenced in May this year. Alongside the specific assistance provided to Uganda's FIA, the Basel Institute will focus on supporting the national anti-corruption chain more broadly with technical support and legal advice on matters relating to the investigation and prosecution of corruption and money laundering and the recovery of stolen assets.
