Head of FID's Message

Bahrain expressed the most prominent challenges to counter Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing under the responsibility of the state, the financial intelligence directorate, and the public each according to its competencies.

We, as the department of financial intelligence directorate, base our core responsibilities as to receive, analyze, and disseminate information regarding crimes related to Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing, since we are a part of Bahrain’s Law enforcement Agency.

As a directorate, we strive to provide an excellent framework and quality assurance by developing our human resources. Furthermore, our desired goals, as a directorate, are to trace the footsteps of technological development and to reach our fullest capacity of advancement.

To strengthen our internal cooperation, the management team made clear objectives to strengthen ways of cooperation between the local authorities and institutions, including direct methods (formation of committees, meetings and training sessions) and indirect methods (systems, programs and correspondence).

Furthermore, the Financial Intelligence Directorate - represented by the Kingdom of Bahrain - is keen to join institutions and international organizations aimed at combating money laundering and the financing of terrorism. Moreover, the directorate is committed to express recommendations, and seeks to strengthen the various ways of international cooperation with other countries.

In conclusion, I extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to the Government of the Kingdom of Bahrain for their continued support and encouragement.
