This Policy encompasses important areas of financial investigations such as proactive financial investigations, parallel financial investigations, implementation of UNSC sanctions regimes, adoption of risk-based approach in investigations, access to widest range of information, broad investigative techniques, inter-agency coordination and international cooperation, etc. The Policy emphasizes more inclusiveness in financial investigations by LEAs by making it mandatory for all JITs in terrorism cases to conduct parallel financial investigations and enabling them to seek assistance from FIA, FMU and financial regulators. The Implementation Plan of the Policy provides specific actions to be taken by LEAs and competent authorities.
