Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, January 18, 2018 – Officials of MOST, a parliamentary opposition party, on Thursday sent for public consideration draft amendments to the Law on Prevention of Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism, whereby the register of real owners should be made public.

Under the current legislation, the register is available only to state agencies that deal with money laundering and investigate the funding of terrorism.

“Everybody has a legitimate interest to have access to the Register,” said MOST Member of Parliament Tomislav Žagar, adding that the data should be made available and easy to search on the national Finance Agency (FINA) website.

Now, citizens interested in obtaining such information have to submit a request and wait for clerks to conduct relevant procedures, according to Žagar’s explanation.

MOST’s political secretary Nikola Grmoja said that the party had sent the MOST-sponsored amendments to nongovernmental organisations that are interested in this field and called on them to give their suggestions.

The Law on Prevention of Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism was adopted by the Croatian parliament in October.
