Power tends to corrupt.
The international financial regulatory community refers to individuals in positions of power as “politically exposed persons” (PEPs).
Treasury introduced the Financial Intelligence Centre Bill that proposes amendments to FICA to address the position of PEPs.
It suggests the introduction of the concepts of a “domestic prominent influential person” and a “foreign prominent public official” into FICA.
The Bill defines a “domestic prominent influential person” as an individual who holds, or has held, a prominent public function.
This category of PEPs would include senior government officials, leaders of political parties and individuals who hold prominent positions in the private sector.
The parliamentary process in respect of the Bill is complete, and the Bill has been submitted to President Jacob Zuma for approval.
However, the President has expressed reservations about the Bill's constitutionality.
His objections are based on a concern that the Bill potentially infringes on the rights of PEPs.
