& Combating the Finance of Terrorism
The Federal Law for the Prevention and Identification of Operations with Resources of Illegal Origin (LFPIORPI) is intended to protect the financial system and the national economy, establishing measures and procedures to prevent and detect acts or operations involving resources of illegal origin. According to the LFPIORPI, various non-financial activities are designated, including: gambling; the purchase and sale of real estate, vehicles, jewelry and works of art; the lease of real estate; the issuance of prepaid cards; the granting of loans; as well as certain professional services. In this sense, those who carry out designated activities have various obligations and highly relevant sanctions for non-compliance, including fines and criminal sanctions.
