POLITICALLY EXPOSED PERSONS (PEP)
It is widely acknowledged that people in position of authority can use their power for illegal and unscrupulous purposes; recent times have shown high-ranking political and military officials who have drained their country’s resources for their own personal gain.

NON-COOPERATIVE COUNTRIES AND TERRITORIES (NCCT)
The principal objective to identify Non-Cooperative Countries and Territories (NCCT) Initiative was taken by the
Financial Action Task Force (FATF), an inter-governmental body whose purpose is the development and promotion of national and international policies to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. The objective was to reduce the vulnerability of the financial system to money laundering by ensuring that all financial centers adopt and implement measures for the prevention, detection and punishment of money laundering according to internationally recognised standards.
As of October 2006, there are no Non-Cooperative Countries and Territories in the context of the NCCT initiative..
