The Inter-Governmental Action Group against Money Laundering in West Africa (GIABA) was established on 10 December 1999 by the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the ECOWAS.
The main focus area of GIABA at inception was the protection of West African economies and financial systems against Money Laundering.
In January 2006, the Statutes of GIABA were revised to reflect the growing link between Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing, following terrorist attacks on the United States of America on September 11, 2002.
This is why Counter-Financing of Terrorism was incorporated in to GIABA’s mandate.
So in addition to being a reflection of the willingness of the Authority of ECOWAS Heads of State and Government to fight against ML and TF, GIABA is also a Financial Action Task Force-Style Regional Body (FSRB) that fully adheres to the FATF 40 + 9 Recommendations.
