The Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) is the Financial Intelligence Unit of the Government of the Republic of Namibia, statutorily mandated to assist with combatting money laundering, financing of terrorism and proliferation.
The FIC strives to provide a strong legal basis to combat money laundering and the financing of terrorism and proliferation activities; including other financial crimes within the borders of Namibia. In terms of the Financial Intelligence Act, 2012 (Act No 13 of 2012) (FIA), the primary mandate of the FIC is to protect the integrity and stability of the Namibian financial system, by monitoring and supervising the anti-money laundering and financing of terrorism and proliferation controls required to be implemented by businesses that are vulnerable to money laundering and the financing of terrorism and proliferation activities.
The FIC as an administrative financial intelligence unit receives and collects information from persons and businesses, analyse this information and where there is a strong indication that a crime has been committed, disseminates the analysed information to Law Enforcement agencies (e.g. NAMPOL, ACC) for investigation. The FIC does not have investigation powers, but assists law enforcement agencies by providing information necessary for investigation purposes.
