OECD: ”Turkey hasn't done enough to fight money laundering and terrorist financing”
Turkey has performed poorly in the fight against money laundering and financing terrorism, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). After a June 20 deadline for Turkey to complete necessary legal regulations and meet FATF'S demands passed without results, the Financial Action Force (FATF), a group working on behalf of the OECD, placed Turkey on its black-gray list. The list also includes such countries as Syria, Ethiopia, Kenya, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Bolivia. FATF warned Turkey in 2007 about the insufficiency of its legislation related to terrorist financing.
