Anti-laundering bill talks to continue today
…after APNU finally presents amendments
A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) MPs yesterday finally submitted proposed amendments to the anti-laundering bill for consideration in the select committee of Parliament which will require an additional day for drafting and consideration by the committee.
After three days of meetings this past week – Monday, Tuesday and Thursday - the committee members agreed on a meeting on Saturday and again yesterday with the hopes of having the bill back in the House today. However, the process required to formalize APNU’s amendments so that they could be properly considered by the committee requires work and so after a more than seven-hour meeting yesterday, deliberations remained incomplete.
