The Financial Intelligence Unit was establised in August 2002 as the central agency in Mauritius responsible for receiving, requesting, analysing and disseminating to local investigatory and supervisory authorities as well as foreign FIUs, disclosures of information concerning suspected proceeds of crime, alleged money laundering or transactions related to terrorism. It is a member of the Egmont Group of FIUs since July 2003 and plays a lead role globally and in the African region with respect to FIU development and implementation of FATF and Egmont standards.
One of our latest innovations is the implementation of the UN goAML project with the support of our Government and the UNODC.
Report of suspicious transactions can be lodged with the FIU via the goAML Web, which is an integrated IT application.
