Assembly debate on 11 April 2019 (17th Sitting) (see Doc. 14847 and addendum, report of the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights, rapporteur: Mr Mart van de Ven). Text adopted by the Assembly on 11 April 2019 (17th Sitting).
1 Recalling its Resolution 2279 (2019) “Laundromats: responding to new challenges in the international fight against organised crime, corruption and money laundering”, the Parliamentary Assembly calls on the Committee of Ministers to:
1.1 maintain national and international activities and co-operation to counter organised crime, corruption and money laundering as strategic priorities of the Council of Europe, bearing in mind the serious threats these offences represent to democratic stability, human rights and the rule of law throughout Europe;
1.2 ensure that regardless of the future budgetary situation, such activities, notably those of the Committee of Experts on the Evaluation of Anti-Money Laundering Measures and the Financing of Terrorism (MONEYVAL) and the Group of States against Corruption (GRECO), continue to be adequately resourced;
1.3 enhance co-ordination of its anti-money laundering activities with those of other international bodies, notably the European Union, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and the United Nations.
