Lacson Bill Adds Casinos, Real Estate Brokers, Art and Vehicle Dealers to Anti-Money Laundering Act Coverage

To better equip Philippine authorities to fight money laundering, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson has filed a bill expanding the coverage of the Anti-Money Laundering Act (AMLA) to include Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions (DNFBPs) such as casinos, real estate brokers, and dealers of art works and motor vehicles.

Lacson, in Senate Bill 45, said the Financial Action Task Force has noted how money launderers now use such businesses and professions to cover their illegal transactions, with the casino industry seemingly attractive for those undertaking money-laundering activities.

β€œWhile the contributions of the (casino) industry are acknowledged, it is also understood that casinos are equally exposed to the raging threats of money laundering,” Lacson said in explaining the inclusion of casinos in the AMLA’s scope.

Ipupurisige ni Senador Panfilo Lacson ang krusada laban sa pagpasok sa bansa ng salaping kinita sa mga ilegal na aktibidad o money laundering activities.

Sa Senate Bill 45 na inihain ni Lacson na naglalayong amyendahan ang umiiral na Anti-Money Laundering Act sa bansa, dinagdagan pa ng mambabatas ang mga aktibidad na ibibilang sa mga babantayan kaugnayan sa nabanggit na ilegal na transaksiyon.

Kabilang sa mga aktibidad na imomonitor ng mga awtoridad batay sa panukala ni Lacson ay ang operasyon ng mga casino, real estate brokers, mga nagbebenta ng artworks at maging mga negosyante ng mga mamamahaling sasakyan.
