Uruguay Anti-Terror Law

Uruguay: Comprehensive Anti-Terrorism Bill of Law

Parliament is studying a bill of law seeking to bring national legislation in step with international anti-terrorism standards.

According to the National Anti-Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing Secretariat (Senaclaft), this is a comprehensive bill on terrorism and its financing, which has the potential to become model legislation for the region, since it has been drafted based on the resolutions adopted by the United Nations Organization and the recommendations of specialized agencies.
