An insurance firm operating in the UAE has been fined AED 1.2 million for flouting anti-money laundering rules.
The regulatory lapses were uncovered during investigations carried out by the Central Bank (CBUAE).
The authority said that it found deficiencies in the company's policies and procedures to prevent money laundering and illegal financing.
The CBUAE, through its supervisory and regulatory mandates, works to ensure that all insurance firms, their owners and staff abide by the regulations and standards to safeguard the transparency and integrity of the UAE's financial system.
