08 February 2018

The Sixth report of the Secretary-General on the threat posed by ISIL (Da’esh) to international peace and security commended the work done by the CIS Anti-Terrorism Centre to bring together the efforts of financial intelligence units and competent authorities in combating terrorism financing (click to see the report)

The document highlights the role of the member-states, international, regional and sub-regional organizations and the private sector in countering this threat. "Innovative partnerships between Government agencies and private sector actors have expanded the sharing of sensitive information on terrorism-financing patterns and suspect individuals, thereby enabling law enforcement authorities to disrupt travel by foreign terrorist fighters, detect terrorists and individuals associated with terrorism networks and bring terrorists to justice".

Countering financing of terrorism is one of the priority missions implemented in the Commonwealth of Independent States. The CIS Anti-Terrorism Centre brings together the efforts of the Commonwealth's competent authorities and financial intelligence units (FIU).

The CIS ATC in cooperation with the CIS Council of the Heads of Financial Intelligence Units processes and delivers up-to-date information on the individuals wanted for terrorism and mercenary activity to the FIUs within the Barrier preventive operation aimed to disrupt financial support to terrorist fighters. 

The CIS ATC in cooperation with the Eurasian Group on Combating Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism and the International Training and Methodology Centre of Financial Monitoring organizes joint workshops and training courses for the representatives of the CIS competent authorities and FIUs.
