Australian law to be toughened to deter money laundering and cybercrime

The Australian Financial Commission will be toughening up laws that will make it more difficult for people to commit crimes using the money they have stashed away for illegal gambling.

Key points:The government will introduce the Criminal Justice and Security Bill 2018 which includes a mandatory reporting requirement to the Australian Tax Office in addition to the existing reporting requirements for property, business and trust offencesThe bill will be passed by Parliament in October and will be tabled in early JanuaryThe bill, which was approved by Parliament’s Joint Standing Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs on Friday, will also require the Australian Anti-Money Laundering Authority to report on financial crimes to the Attorney-General’s Department and the Australian Federal Police.

In addition, it will also make it a criminal offence for an individual or entity to have “control or influence” over someone else’s financial affairs.

The bill includes provisions that will allow for more robust reporting requirements.

The Attorney-Generals Department will also be required to publish a report every two years on the activities of financial institutions, including on the types of offences committed and their potential impact on Australian communities.

The government says the legislation will make the law easier to enforce, because it will require a greater degree of confidence that people will follow the rules and report suspicious transactions.

“The Australian banking system is an incredibly complex and complex system that requires significant resources and expertise to operate effectively,” Finance Minister Mathias Cormann said.

“This legislation will enable the Australian Financial Crime Taskforce to work more effectively, both with the Australian Banking and Finance Authority and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.”

In addition to making it easier to trace, we will ensure that criminals can no longer evade detection and we will make criminal organisations more difficult to target.

“The new measures come after the Financial Services Minister Michael McCormack made a number of public comments in the lead-up to the legislation, including suggesting that the legislation should apply to anyone who has a gambling addiction, but not to people who have not gambled.

The Federal Government will also introduce legislation in the coming weeks which will make overseas financial institutions liable for financial crimes committed in Australia.”

In response to questions from The Australian on Monday, the Treasury said it is “committed” to the criminal justice reform agenda and that it would “work closely with the Government and the AFP to ensure that financial crime is treated with the seriousness it deserves”.”

In particular, in the case of overseas financial intermediaries, the law will now apply to their conduct within Australia.”
