The Egmont Group (EG) of Financial Intelligence Units (FIUs) extends its sincere gratitude to Ilze Znotina, Head of FIU (HoFIU) Latvia from June 2018 to May 2022, for her leadership, her tremendous support of EG initiatives, and her contributions to anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing (AML/CTF) nationally and internationally.
Despite feelings of disappointment, we share Ms. Znotina’s sentiment and confidence that she is leaving behind a strong, highly competent, and well-established FIU that eagerly supports the EG’s global collaboration efforts and will continue to perform its duties as set out by law and in accordance with the highest possible standards.
The EG also has confidence in the great team Ms. Znotina built during her tenure and their ability to host a successful EG Plenary. As Ms. Znotina has stated, “FIU Latvia is ready for challenges. After all, surprising the world with ideas and skills is part of Latvian nature. Our history has made us into imaginative, alert, and tough problem-solvers who swiftly react and adapt to complex situations.”
The EG thanks Ms. Znotina and looks forward to seeing her, the team at FIU-Latvia, and all AML/CTF colleagues at the 28th annual EG Plenary. See you in Riga!
