Liberia’s Prevention of Money Laundering Law

Liberia passed its Prevention of Money Laundering Law, which added a sub-chapter G to Chapter 15 of its Penal Law, in June 2002. The Prevention of Money Laundering Law contains detailed provisions which establish money laundering offenses and related sanctions (including the confiscation of the proceeds of criminal conduct), as well as measures to prevent the use of the financial system for the purposes of money laundering.
