Media engagement approach

As South Africa’s national financial intelligence unit, the FIC is responsible for producing financial intelligence for the use of competent authorities in their investigations, prosecutions, and applications for asset forfeiture. The FIC administers the FIC Act as part of government’s framework for combating money laundering, the financing of terrorism and weapons of mass destruction. For more information on the FIC Act and the work of the FIC visit the About page.

In responding to media queries, the FIC is limited to providing broad information about its oversight role and function. It is not able to comment on the work of the supervisory bodies, accountable institutions nor that of the competent authorities, which are independent of the FIC.

Confidentiality requirements, emanating from the FIC Act and the nature of its work prevent the FIC from disclosing or denying whether:
