On 20 May, the Federal Ministry of Finance published a draft bill on the implementation of the so-called 5th Money Laundering Directive (2018/843), thus going beyond the requirements of the EU Money Laundering Directive in some important areas.
The "Directive on the protection of persons reporting on breaches of Union law", also known as the "whistleblower" Directive, is due to be published this summer.
