LIGHT: on 31st March and 1st April the Italian Seminar will Gather European Legal Practitioners in Rome

The goal is to discuss rules, policies and actions to combat money laundering.

The first training seminar of the project is finally approaching. Federnotai (the Italian Notaries’ Association), with support from UINL (International Union of Notaries) and Confprofessioni (the coordinator, Italian Confederation of Liberal Professionals) is now defining the final details of the event.

The seminar will take place presentially on 31st March and 1st April, in order to benefit from the added value of a transnational event with legal practitioners of different nationalities. Also, a prestigious institutional venue should host it : the Italian Senate, in Rome.

The seminar aims at increasing the competence of legal practitioners in the field of anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism, and specifically on the relevant EU legislation and the role of notaries and lawyers, with a specific focus on red tape. Many high-levels speakers will join the two-day event. In particular, it is worth mentioning the three main trainers: Mr. Cesare Licini, notary in Pesaro and expert on the field of AML policies; Mr. Mario Palazzi, judge, public prosecutor of the District Antimafia Directorate at the Court of Rome; Hon. Sen. Felice Casson, former public prosecutor.

DG FISMA of the European Commission, competent on financial stability, financial services and capital markets, has just confirmed its participation and is expected to hold a speech on the matter; many other guests will bring their expertise, from the point of view of the professions as well as of the competent authorities.
