Binance Turkey fined 8M lira for non-compliance against money laundering

MASAK found Binance Turkey guilty of violating the Law on Prevention of Laundering Proceeds of Crime, also known as the AML Law.

The Financial Crimes Investigation Board (MASAK) has fined Binance Turkey 8 million lira (nearly $750,000) after the crypto exchange failed the financial watchdog’s audit for monitoring Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance.

The Financial Crimes Investigation Board (MASAK), which serves as Turkey’s financial intelligence unit under the Ministry of Finance and Treasury, found crypto exchange Binance’s Turkey operations guilty of violating laws that intend to prevent the laundering of money acquired through criminal means. According to local news media Anadolu Agency, MASAK carried out an audit of Law №5549 on Prevention of Laundering Proceeds of Crime, also known as the AML Law.

The AML Law in Turkey requires companies to identify and verify the personal identification information of the customers on the platform, which includes details such as surname, date of birth, T.C. identification number (Turkey equivalent of a social security number) and type and number of identity documents. The law also requires businesses to immediately notify the government about suspicious activities within a 10-day period.
