Rapport d'évaluation mutuelle d'Haïti


Information and methodology used for the evaluation of the Republic of Haiti

1. The evaluation of the anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) regime of the Republic of Haiti1 was based on the Forty Recommendations 2003 and the Nine Special Recommendations on Terrorist Financing 2001 of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), and was prepared using the AML/CFT Methodology 20042. The evaluation was based on the laws, regulations and other materials supplied by Haiti, and information obtained by the evaluation team during its on-site visit to Haiti from 24 September to 5 October 2007, and throughout the evaluation process. During the on-site visit, the evaluation team met with officials and representatives from all relevant Haitian Government agencies and the private sector. A list of the bodies met is provided in Annex 2 to the Mutual Evaluation Report.

2. The evaluation was carried out by an evaluation team made up of criminal law experts from the World Bank and criminal prosecution and regulatory specialists. The evaluation team consisted of Marianne Mathias (legal expert, consultant), André Cuisset (law enforcement expert, consultant) and Jean Pesme (financial sector, World Bank, team leader). The experts reviewed the institutional framework, the relevant AML/CFT laws, regulations, guidelines and other requirements, and the regulatory and other systems in place to deter money laundering (ML) and the financing of terrorism (FT) through financial institutions and Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions (DNFBP), as well as examining the capacity, the implementation and the effectiveness of all these systems
