Fighting money laundering and financing of terrorism
Investigating cases of suspected money laundering or financing of terrorism, the Croatian office fighting money laundering and financing of terrorism sent total 128 requests to 39 different countries last year, asking for information that might help it resolve specific cases. During the same period, the Croatian office had 133 requests from 33 countries for the same type of data exchange, according to its report for the Government. In 2018, the office was predominantly preoccupied with money laundering, while suspected financing of terrorism was much less frequent. The report also shows that most suspicions related to money laundering were connected to Italy (30%).
