The United States will bolster Panama’s ability to crack down on money laundering and other acts of graft, the U.S. embassy in the Central American nation announced on Monday following high-level meetings between officials from both countries.
The new anti-money laundering task force will involve training for Panamanian prosecutors and regulators by personnel from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
“The task force will target money laundering networks, including non-narcotic related networks, and strengthen capacity to investigate, disrupt and prosecute money laundering and corruption,” according to a statement from the embassy.
