Good afternoon. I am probably using the reporting channel so I will greatly appreciate it if this can be forwarded to the correct person.

My enquiry relates to both proceeds of crime as well as terrorist financing reporting.

Having worked in banks for the last two decades I've had to complete the annual compliance training, specifically relevant to this email are FICA, POCDATARA and the Proceeds of Crime Act. It would be fair to say that I have extensive experience of those processes that are expected to identify suspicious activities and those related to reporting them. All banks also have extensive ethics programmes around honesty and integrity with clear expectations for what ethical behavior is supposed to be.

It is therefore inconceivable to me that the transgressions highlighted in the State Capture report, as well as other documents like annual DG reports, could not have been identified or reported. I can highlight the Regiments Capital/SAA case as an example of where actions were taken that should have not just raised red flags, but the activities should have been reported.

That is just one example, and there are literally hundreds of others. Furthermore, the recent violence related to the imprisonment of Mr Zuma is clearly classified as terrorism, and it was orchestrated by known groups and individuals. Similarly, accounts and financial activities of those entities should by now have resulted in reporting, and the closing of bank accounts.

There are a few things can be inferred from the lack of action, the main one being that the consequences for illegal behaviour are insufficient and that further reform in the regulatory environment is required. Since the FIC is one of the important bulwarks that should protect us against the risks associated with the abuse of the financial system, it only makes sense to reach out to you for some input.

I have a very simple question, but with a long answer: what actions are the FIC taking to reform the regulatory system to ensure that the abuses of the recent past are not repeated and that those responsible, both private and public, are held accountable?

I do not represent any organisation, and I am asking this as a citizen. I am of the opinion that there are material changes required to our legislative and regulatory systems to ensure better enforcement of compliance and the evidence at our disposal shows that what we have at the moment is insufficient.

To whom it may concern.

I am a researcher for the South African identity verificatoin and due diligence company, ThisIsMe. I am researching and writing content on topics relating to our services, many of which fall under the umbrella of the FIC, such as AML/CFT. We are interested in getting insights from experts on these topics and would be highly interested in any insights the FIC could offer. Please let us know if the FIC itself, or someone within the FIC, would be willing to engage with us.

Sincerely,
Sam Strand

Please comment:
The FIC is making good progress in tackling smallish financial crimes including money laundering running into the millions, with the exception of R3.8 billion concerning certain Eskom executives.
Hampered by budgetary constraints, which limits the number of specialists it can employ, such as forensic accountants, does the FIC have the capacity to identify the very large crimes concerning state capture and illicit financial flows running into the billions?

Goodday,
 
I hope you’re well?
 
 
I am a reporter at a current affairs show called kykNET Verslag on channel 144 and am doing a story about how car dealerships could possibly play a role in fighting corruption in government.
 
Would you be able to setup an interview someone from FIC to speak on the responsibility dealerships have in terms of reporting dodgy car purchases, etc?
 
 
I would like to do the interview tomorrow (anytime before 14:00 would be great. Usually the earlier the better for us). We just need 30 minutes of your time.
 
 
I look forward to hearing from you.
 
Kind regards

Good Morning. I'm working on a story about details that emerged indicating that Ms Danisa Baloyi's Absa account has been frozen on the instruction of the Financisl Intelligence Centre after it has identified suspicious transactions involving former President Jacob Zuma.

Questions
Can you kindly confirm that FIC played a role in the freezing of Ms Baloyi's account?
Can you confirm that the freezing of the account was due to payments linked to former President Zuma?
Was Ms Baloyi informed about FIC's investigations and its subsequent decision?
If not, why?
What's the current status of the matter?

I will appreciate your earliest response

Dear Sir/Madam

I would like to request an interview with the FIC on its work and what it does particularly how it redflags money laundering, corrupt activities of individuals and companies.

The questions I would ask are around the actual work being done at the Fusion Centre with other agencies.

The perception out there is that corruption goes unnoticed and not prosecuted because cirminals elements know how to cheat the system.

What does the FIC Act say can be probed and what amounts can be probed.

Looking forward to a positive response.

I would like to have this interview in-studio or via Zoom.

Good day,

I would like to have a conversation about the FinCEN files report released over the weekend and whether there are any possible implications for banks in South Africa or if the Financial Intelligence Centre is grappling with any concerns around what the files revealed:
 
1) What are the implications for local banks?
2) Has the release of the files shed new light on the way suspicious activity is tracked that the FIC is concerned about, and what can or should be done?
3) More broadly, is the FIC concerned about current regulation or protocols around money laundering and other suspicious activity and how it is looked at in South Africa? Is there be any need to beef up processes for local banks?
4) Is there a need to reconsider powers of oversight bodies?

Thanks and kind regards

Dear Sir/ Madame. I am Llewellyn Prince, a political reporter with Netwerk24/Media24 in Cape Town. We just want to confirm from the FIC whether the institution had indeed filed a notice last week in which it intends to oppose the EFF's application in die North Gauteng High Court to unseal Pres. Cyril Ramaphosa's CR17 campaing documents as reported by News24 today. Did the FIC filed its court papers in that regard? I would dearly appreciate it. Regards.

Dear Sir/Madam,
 
We are writing a report on how countries are fighting online global scams. Goal of the report is to let organizations work more together internationally.
 
We will publish the report at the Global Online Summit on Scams on the 12th of November which we are organizing to fight online scams. You are very welcome to join of course.
 
Do you have any tips how organizations are is fighting online scams in your country?
• Is there a consumer helpdesk or consumer protection agency informing consumers about online scams?
• Is there a central website where consumers can report online scams?
• Is there a special national police unit?
• Any data on number of online scams / amount lost in 2019?
 
If you can share any links to websites or people that would be great.
 
I will of course make sure you get a copy of the report and name you as source.
 
I hope you have time to help make the world a (slightly) better place.
 
Best regards,

Prof. Jorij Abraham BBA, MCS
