New rules set to punish money launderers agreed


The EU Council, at ambassadors' level, confirmed last Thursday the agreement reached between the Bulgarian presidency and the Parliament on new rules on using criminal law to counter money laundering. The new directive aims at disrupting and blocking access by criminals to financial resources, including those used for terrorist activities. “Making sure money laundering activities are sanctioned will help cut the flow of money going into the pockets of criminals,” Bulgarian Justice Minister Tsetska Tsacheva has said.
