Will the reporting entities also be informed about what happens in the case?

The Money Laundering Secretariat may give feedback to the reporting entities if this does not conflict with investigative considerations. This means that the Money Laundering Secretariat may notify reporting entities about the status of the case, including the bringing of formal charges and the final decision, etc.

In this connection, the Money Laundering Secretariat will weigh the considerations for the person submitting the report against the reporting entity’s need for feedback.

The Money Laundering Secretariat may also give feedback if it finds that this may prevent or stop criminal offences from being committed against the reporting entity.

The Money Laundering Secretariat gives feedback electronically through the same channels as it receives reports.

The Money Laundering Secretariat also holds regular meetings with the reporting entities to provide more general feedback and information about money laundering.
