- Any person, having the knowledge that the funds are the proceeds of a felony or a misdemeanour, and who willfully commits any of the following acts, shall be considered a perpetrator of the crime of Money Laundering:
- Transferring or moving proceeds or conducting any transaction with the aim of concealing or disguising their illegal source.
- Concealing or disguising the true nature, source or location of the proceeds as well as the method involving their disposition, movement, ownership of or rights with respect to said proceeds.
- Acquiring, possessing or using proceeds upon receipt.
- Assisting the perpetrator of the predicate offence to escape punishment.
- The crime of Money Laundering is considered as an independent crime. The punishment of the perpetrator for the predicate offence shall not prevent his punishment for the crime of Money Laundering.
- Proving the illicit source of the proceeds should not constitute a prerequisite to sentencing the perpetrator of the predicate offence.
The new UAE Anti-Money Laundering Law is implemented to ensure the regulatory role of UAE government through the central bank of the emirates. The central bank of UAE regulates and monitor the operations of financial institutions and bank across the Emirates. In accordance with the AML compliance law, any activity or transaction suspected to be related to Money-Laundering shall be reported to the central bank of the UAE. Most suspected types of activity that could be related to Money-Laundering are:
- Large cash transfers or deposits
- Numerous exchange of money into other currencies
- Alleged setup of business with no commercial purpose
- Unusual and enormous transactions of debit and credit into the accounts
