Guyana has until November to come up with the amendments to the anti-money Laundering Bill.

royo elePresident of the Guyana Trade Union Congress Norris Witter believes that the government is fearful of a quality Anti-money Laundering and Counter of Financing of Terrorism legislation.

The union is calling for the political will among all political parties to have a number of pieces of  legislation that are important to good governance addressed.

 Witter is of the opinion that the government prefers to have Guyana default, blacklisted and hopefully blame the opposition.

 GTUC general secretary  Lincoln Lewis said he wants to see changes in the bill. Lewis feels that the money-laundering bill falls within the purview of good governance.

The GTUC believes that any bill or law that seeks to address money –laundering and terroristic activities must ensure structures are put in place to achieve compliance built on international principles of accountable and legitimate behavior by the government.
