The Foreign Affairs, Defence and National Security Committee of Bahrain’s Parliament has approved Bahrain Law No. 29/2020 amending Bahrain Decree-Law No. 4/2001 on prohibiting and tackling money laundering and terrorist financing. The new amendments expand the criminalisation of money laundering to include any criminal activity provided for by Bahraini laws or any other laws and international agreements which are ratified by the Kingdom of Bahrain and became party to. The Law also increases the penalties by adding more penalties and granting the relevant authorities the necessary powers to impose administrative fines on violating establishments.
