Evolution of Case Originators from 2009 to 2011
Cases for analytical work and dissemination emanate not only from Suspicious Transaction Reports (STRs) submitted by reporting institutions defined under FIAMLA 2002 but as well as from disclosures by Supervisory bodies (i.e. Bank of Mauritius, Financial Services Commission and Gambling Regulatory Authority), Investigatory bodies (ICAC, Police, MRA-Customs), foreign FIUs and others which may include anonymous letters or even requests from Government departments.
It is obvious that 2011 has been a record year for the receipt of STRs since 2002. The 214 STRs received represent a significant increase of almost 90% compared to the 114 STRs submitted in the previous year. Alternatively it can be observed that the number of disclosures received by the FIU during the past three years has been steadily growing. With regards to the year under review, the number of disclosures stood at 125 against 110 in 2010.
