New York, NY (PressExposure) March 02, 2009 -- Edcomm Bankerâs Academy has recently updated its extended Anti Money Laundering (AML) training program designed specifically for financial institutions located in Bahrain. Focus on AML for Bahrain has been enhanced to provide a more detailed, extensive training program that teaches employees at banks and financial institutions in Bahrain about the AML laws and regulations for their country.
In January 2001, the Government of Bahrain enacted an Anti Money Laundering (AML) law that criminalizes the laundering of proceeds derived from any predicate offense. The Law stipulates punishment of up to seven years imprisonment and a fine of up to one million Bahraini dinars (BD) for convicted launderers and those aiding or abetting such offenders. If organized criminal affiliation, corruption or disguise of the origin of proceeds is involved, offenders face a minimum penalty fine of at least 100,000 dinars and a prison term of no less than five years.
Focus on AML for Bahrain, from Edcomm Bankerâs Academy, teaches bank employees about AML laws in Bahrain and familiarizes them with their companyâs own policies and procedures. Through this interactive course, students learn everything they need to know to detect and prevent money laundering. Beginning with an overview of Anti Money Laundering, the program goes on to cover International Money Laundering, Money Laundering in Bahrain, and how to prevent, detecting and report Money Laundering. Focus on Anti Money Laundering for Bahrain can be customized to meet the needs of every Bank, Credit Union, or Money Services Business (MSB). Each course is regularly updated to include changing laws and policies.
