Preparations for the Fourth Round of Mutual Evaluations: Assessors Training in El SalvadorDuring the week of February 24th to 28th 2014, CFATF/FATF Assessors Training was held in the Republic of El Salvador, for Members of the CFATF and GAFISUD.

The Honorable Luis Antonio Martinez Gonzalez, Attorney General of the Republic of El Salvador and Deputy Chair of the CFATF, welcomed delegates from the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras and Venezuela during an inaugural lecture. He reassured the high commitment and support of their jurisdiction towards raising compliance with FATF Standards, the application of FATF Methodology and the response to challenges posed by the Fourth Round of Mutual Evaluations.

Participants were warmly received in the premises of the prosecutor’s training facilities (Escuela de Fiscales), within the Attorney General's Office, where they had the opportunity to exchange experiences and go through an intense week of learning. Presentations were conducted by facilitators from FATF, International Monetary Fund and the CFATF. The training also included a Mutual Evaluation exercise.

The CFATF is certain that the group of trained assessors is prepared to positively face the challenges of the Fourth Round of Mutual Evaluations. We thank the Honorable Attorney General and our friends from El Salvador, once again, for their hospitality and warm welcome. We also wish to thank all delegates for their excellent participation.
See you soon friends!
