Anti-Money Laundering AML

The negative economic effects of money laundering and terrorist financing on economic development are difficult to quantify

Yemen, as one of the Middle East and North Africa Region (MENAFATF) members, adheres to Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Combating Terrorist Financing (CFT) recommendations.

Tadhamon International Islamic Bank (TIIB) duly incorporated and existing under License No. 313 dated 16/07/1996 under the supervision of the Central Bank of Yemen (CBY) which acts in accordance with regulations issued by the Law of Central bank of Yemen No. (21) of 1991 and the presidential Decree No. (36) of 1991.

Our Bank has established internal procedures and policies to detect, combat Money Laundering (ML) and Finance of Terrorism (FT) in accordance with the Yemeni Law no. (1) of 2010 on Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Combating Financing of Terrorism (CFT) which entered to force on Jan.1st2010 in Yemen. This law, which came into effect following FATF Recommendations, has been amended by the Law no (17) of 2013 and the statutory duties resulting therefrom have been clarified by the corresponding guidelines issued by the Financial Information Unit (FIU) and Central Bank of Yemen.

Yemeni Banks are required by law to check regularly and document the identity of their customers. We have a written policy in place to meet the requirements imposed, which includes establishing and, ongoing basis, conducting customer due diligence (CDD) and maintaining records in accordance with applicable regulations.

TIIB carries out an on-going Anti-Money Laundering Training and Awareness Programme for appropriate personnel and we conduct an independent audit of the Programme. We have also implemented clear procedures to identify and report suspicious transactions and to confirm the legitimacy of the source and destination of larger transactions before processing them.

It is not part of our business to offer banking services to any bank incorporated in a jurisdiction in which it has no physical presence and which is unaffiliated with a regulated financial group (shell bank). We have a policy to ensure that we do not conduct transactions with or on behalf of shell banks through any of our accounts or products.

We do neither maintain relationships with banks that use payable-through-accounts nor do we keep such accounts in our own books. TIIB has a policy covering relationships with Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), their family and close associates. Our Anti-Money Laundering Policy and Procedures are applicable to our domestic branches and to our subsidiaries abroad. Our Compliance Department is responsible for the observance of Anti-Money Laundering Requirements.

The mitigation of money laundering risks plays an important role in assisting the Central Bank of Yemen in achieving its objectives of preserving market confidence and promoting and maintaining the efficiency, transparency and integrity of the Yemenis financial sector. Also, it aims to deter criminals from using the products, services and network of  Tadhamon International Islamic Bank  for laundering the proceeds of their crimes.

In this respect, Tadhamon International Islamic Bank (TIIB) has created an independent Compliance Function having a formal status within the bank to give it the appropriate standing, authority and independence. The mission of the Compliance Function is to ensure that the Bank is complying with laws, regulations, rules, internal policies and procedures, and the code of conduct applicable to its banking activities. This typically includes specific areas such as the prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing.

TIIB is committed to fighting money laundering and combating terrorism financing by adopting and maintaining policies, procedures, systems and controls.

Also, we strongly believe that stringent “Know Your Customer” (KYC) measures have particular relevance to safety and due diligence in that they help to protect the Bank’s image by reducing the likelihood of becoming a vehicle for, or a victim of, financial crime and, as a result, suffer reputation damage.

 
Compliance Department:

It is responsible for ascertaining that concerned officers are complying with the procedure guide on the implementation of legal and regulatory requirements for fighting money laundering, review periodically the effectiveness of the procedures on fighting money laundering, propose amendments, and report the results of their compliance efforts.

 
Branch Compliance Officer (liaison):

Compliance Officers who reside in the branches have a reporting line to the branch manager but also have a reporting line through to the Compliance Department with regard to their compliance responsibilities. The Branch Compliance Officers are responsible for implementation of AML requirements in the branch, by verifying the completeness and accuracy of information in the context of customers’ identification, by monitoring transactions on accounts particularly cash transactions, transfers, and any other account-related operations, and by investigating and reporting any suspicious case to the Compliance Department.

Updating of Customers' Identification Information/ Due Diligence

TIIB is not only satisfied with customers' identification at the outset of the relationship, but this exercise extends over the lifetime of the relationship to ensure that its customers' identification records remain completely updated with all relevant identification elements and information throughout the business relationship. In this respect, TIIB examines and checks on a regular basis the validity and adequacy of the customer identification data and information it maintains.

In addition to minimizing the risk of a bank’s services being used for illicit activities, collecting and maintaining sufficient information on a customer’s identity allows the early detection and recognition of suspicious transactions/activities and protects the bank from possible fraud and the underlying risks on their financial robustness and reputation.

 
AML Training

Training has long been recognized as a key element of an effective anti-money laundering (AML) compliance program, therefore, we believe that well-trained and vigilant staffs remain the first line of defense in monitoring transactions and identifying suspicious activities.

Our training program aims at educating staff on the latest developments in anti-money laundering and terrorist financing including the practical methods and trends used by criminals for this purpose.
