The Law on Preventing Financing of Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction adopted in Turkey entered into force on 31 December 2020, after it was passed by the Parliament. The Law is meant to be “in line” with international standards in the fight against the financing of terrorism and laundering offenses in light of the 2019 report of the FATF and the UN Security Council resolutions.

These changes raise serious concern for the enabling environment for CSOs in Turkey. Read more here.
