State of play of the EU's fight against money laundering, in light of the Luanda Leaks (debate)

  Sirpa Pietikäinen (PPE). – Mr President, we all know that the biggest fault of the Anti—money Laundering Directive lies in the Member States; in poor implementation, lacking European powers on European prudential supervision, poor cooperation between financial intelligence units, the limited scope of powers of the Financial Intelligence Unit Platform to set standards. We know that the system is not working, because it’s not made to be working.

That is the reason, once again reminded, how ineffective we are. What I do hope is that the Commission would consider seriously chasing the anti-money laundering Directive to be a Regulation and to increase substantially the transparency of the beneficial ownership registers, increase the European prudential supervision, and to really set the system on place to function.
