On 19 December 2017, the Dutch Minister of Finance and the Dutch Minister of Justice and Security sent the results of two investigations to the Dutch Parliament:
- the National Risk Assessment Money Laundering report; and
- the National Risk Assessment Terrorist Financing report,
together the Reports.
The two investigations into the risks of money laundering and terrorist financing in the Netherlands were carried out by the Research and Documentation Centre (Wetenschappelijk Onderzoeks- en Documentatiecentrum, the WODC), an international knowledge centre on security, police, criminal, civil and administrative justice and migration issues. The purpose of these investigations has been to map the risks for the Netherlands in the fields of money laundering and terrorist financing that could have the greatest potential impact. The Reports serve to gain more insight into the risks in the aforementioned fields and to see where possible further risk-based policies are necessary to combat the use of the financial system for money laundering and terrorist financing.
In the first half of 2018, the WODC will publish two reports on the effectiveness of the Dutch policy framework for the prevention and combating of money laundering and terrorist financing. Once these so-called ‘policy monitors’ are available, they will be sent to the Dutch Parliament and an integrated policy response will be prepared for both the policy monitors and the Reports.
