With South Africa already on precarious ground as a result of its alleged ‘state capture’; not least also the effects of South Africa being downgraded to “junk-status” by Standard and Poors and Fitch rating agencies, it was in the nick of time that President Jacob Zuma signed the Financial Intelligence Centre Amendment Act 1 of 2017 (‘the Amendment Act’) into law on 28 April 2017.

HONORARY PATRONSHIP: PROFESSOR MICHAEL KATZ ADDS WORLDCLASS LEADERSHIP TO CGF (2017-05-10)
