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 sector. 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.
