This report sets out Botswana’s progress in strengthening anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing measures since its 2017 assessment. Since its 2017 mutual evaluation, Botswana has made progress in addressing deficiencies. Overall, Botswana has made progress in addressing deficiencies in technical compliance identified in its MER to justify re-rating of Recommendations 9 (re-rated PC in the 1st FUR)) to Compliant, Recommendations 13 (re-rated PC in the 1st FUR), 16 (re-rated PC in the 1st FUR), 18 (originally rated PC), 22 (originally rated NC), 33 and 34 (initially rated PC) to Largely Compliant. Due to moderate shortcomings in Recommendations 19, 25, 26 28 and 35 a partially complaint (PC) rating was warranted.
