It recommends that a person who fails to comply with it will be liable to a monetary penalty not exceeding Sh5 million while the penalty for a corporate body will not exceed Sh25 million.

The amended law adds that in the case of continued failure, the person or reporting institution shall be liable to an additional monetary penalty of Sh10 million.

The new legislation also formalises the establishment of the Assets Recovery Agency, which will handle all cases of recovery of the proceeds of crime or benefits accruing from money laundering.
