SUBMISSION OF SUSPICIOUS TRANSACTION REPORTS (“STR”)
In view of the COVID- 19 global pandemic, and further to the measures being implemented by the Department of Health, the Financial Intelligence Unit (“FIU”) has found it necessary to implement alternate mechanisms for the submission of Suspicious Transaction Reports (“STRs”) by Reporting Entities.
As reporting of suspicious transactions and activities remains a priority for reporting entities, effective immediately, the FIU requests that all STRs are submitted via email through the following procedures:
- The completed STR should be compressed into a zipped file, together with the relevant supporting documents in relation to the information being submitted.
- Password protect the zipped file before emailing to the FIU. Reporting Entities are advised to use alphanumerical passwords with a minimum of twelve (12) characters and containing symbols and letters in both upper and lower case.
- Email only the password-protected zipped file to the following mailing address; [email protected] and [email protected]
- The password is to be shared by calling telephone number (+248)2631310
The FIU wishes to reassure all its partners that the confidentiality and integrity of information received by the FIU will not be compromised and that it continues to maintain very high standards in relation to the security of information.
