Islamic Republic of Afghanistan :, Detailed Assessment Report on Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism

Afghanistan is one of the poorest countries in the world and, after decades of ongoing conflicts and strife, it is still at an early stage of developing its legal and institutional framework.

A framework has been established to allow for international mutual legal assistance but it falls short of the standard and is rarely used
