Alan Linning was invited to present a “train the trainer” course for tutors of Hong Kong Law Society’s Anti-Money Laundering/Counter-Financing of Terrorism Risk Management Education Programme on 14 January 2019. Organised by the Law Society of Hong Kong, ten lawyers heard Alan discuss the impact of recent amendments to the Anti-Money Laundering Ordinance (AMLO) in Hong Kong on the legal profession. Alan gave an overview of AML and Counter-Financing of Terrorism laws in Hong Kong and covered the key provisions of the AMLO. He introduced the Law Society of Hong Kong’s revised Practice Direction P which is the profession’s practical guidance to the changes in AMLO. Alan also covered the Suspicious Transaction Reporting submission and provided useful tips on the “5 Ws” before accepting instructions; and shared on the recent developments and regulatory outlook of Hong Kong’s anti-money laundering regime which is driven by Hong Kong Monetary Authority’s Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering.
