FIA to launch anonymous reporting system for suspicious activities

The Financial Intelligence Authority (FIA) is working with Deloitte Malawi on a tip-offs anonymous system to enable individual persons report suspicious transactions/activities to the agency. The system is expected to be in place by December 2019.

The Director of the FIA, Mrs. Atuweni Juwayeyi-Agbermodji disclosed this during the organisation's launch of its Customer Service Delivery Charter in Lilongwe in June 2019.

This is in line with Section 5(g) of the Financial Crimes Act 2017 which empowers the FIA to request and receive information or additional information from any person, institution or agency based locally or internationally for purposes of combating financial crimes.

Currently members of the general public alert the FIA on suspicious financial transactions through letters or emails, or coming to FIA offices to provide the details. In this regard, members of the general public can reach the FIA through info@fia.gov.mw or complaints@fia.gov.mw.
