The Financial Intelligence Unit of Sri Lanka's Central Bank has signed a Memoranda of Understanding with FIUs of Mongolia, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and the United States.

Under the MOU the countries will share financial information to facilitate the investigation and prosecution of people suspected of money laundering and terrorist financing.

The central bank said money launderers and terrorist financiers are most often internationally connected and operate across borders and authorities need to be internationally organized to fight these activities.

Sri Lanka has other MOUs with Australia, Belgium, Bangladesh, Canada, India, Malaysia, South Korea, Indonesia, Philippines, Afghanistan, Nepal, Cambodia, Fiji, Slovenia, South Africa and Solomon Islands.
