Financial Intelligence Unit of Trinidad and Tobago (FIUTT) 2021 Annual Report

I acknowledge that indeed the COVID-19 Pandemic caused the year under review, to be a year of disruption in unimaginable proportions, affecting all facets of life, not only in Trinidad and Tobago. We pay tribute to and remember all lives lost and hardships suffered due to COVID-19. In this reporting period, the Financial Intelligence Unit of Trinidad and Tobago (“the FIUTT”) faced many unique challenges which altered the normal operations of the FIUTT. However, we have re-committed ourselves in purpose to assist Trinidad and Tobago to prevent and combat ML/FT and PF and all forms of other related financial crimes.

I am pleased to present the Annual Report 2020/21 for the FIUTT. Each year the FIUTT publishes a report providing an account of its activities for the past financial year. This is the twelfth such report. This year has been another eventful year, despite all the hardships experienced. I am proud to share with you the achieved results of the FIUTT, which is an exceptionally courageous Team, for the 2020/21 financial year. The FIUTT with our stakeholders in the public and private sectors remained steadfast as we weathered the COVID-19 storm and battled its challenges together to ensure an effective AML/CFT/CPF regime was maintained in Trinidad and Tobago.
