    AML/CFT work in the Bank
• Definitions
Money laundering (ML)is the process by which the
  proceeds derived from a criminal activity are
  disguised in an effort to conceal their illicit origins
  and to legitimize their future use.

Terrorist financing (TF) is the financial support, in
  any form, of terrorism or those who encourage,
  plan or engage in terrorism.
