|Abstract: ||Purpose: the purpose of this research is to critically examine the anti money laundering
framework of the country, the mechanisms to fight it and to suggest ways of enhancing the
effectiveness of the law in achieving its objective with specific reference to the banking
Design/ Methodology/ Approach: the relevant laws enacted to tackle money laundering are
examined to assess their adequacy or otherwise. The research describes the fight against
money laundering in Ethiopia, analyses the gaps still remaining between Ethiopia and
internationally accepted standards and points out the future efforts to be made in general and
from the banking perspective in particular.
Findings: Ethiopia has made a remarkable progress in fighting money laundering activities;
gaps however are still remaining and further efforts should be made to avoid the lacunae in
the anti money laundering laws of the country as recommended.
Originality/ Value: the research presents a comprehensive analysis and comment on the new
anti money laundering law of the country which would be beneficial to policy makers,
relevant administrators and to the banking sector.
Research Limitation: the fact that the anti money laundering law is new and the required
organs are under establishment, it becomes impossible to evaluate the law from pragmatic
approach which constitutes an issue for further research. Freedom of information is also
another chronic challenge to the writer.|
