The government wants to extend the vetting process to notaries as well. Several propositions were placed for public consultation by the Council of Ministers. The new initiative says that Albania has been involved in the list of countries under increased monitoring. This is known as the “grey list” as regards money laundering. For this reason, measures should be more severe, to the point of revoking licenses of abusive notaries.

“The license will be revoked after verifying that the notary has no integrity or credibility, or when they are included in the list of people suspected for funding terror”.

This measure will be taken if it is proven that the notary has helped money laundering of people who are subject of the anti-mafia law.

The verification of their integrity will be carried out by the Ministry of Justice, which reserves the right to obtain information about notaries.
