ACC Commissioner, Francis Ben Kaifala, said at the signing ceremony at the commission’s secretariat that economic and financial crimes were responsible for the poor economic state of the country, and that there was the need for this kind of synergy to strengthen the fight against such crimes and general acts of corruption.

The FIU, established in 2012 as part of the fulfillment of a regional requirement, is charged with the core task of policing the activities of financial institutions and designated non-financial business and professions.

Mohamed Kenewui Konneh, Director of FIU, said they have been identifying institutions that would add value to the work of the Unit and that they believe that the ACC would make their work better, given the “zest” the commission is showing in the fight against corruption.
