KINANSELA ng Monetary Board ng Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas ang certificates of registration ng Edzen Enterprises at World Wide Money Changer dahil sa paglabag sa Anti-Money Laundering Act.
Ayon sa BSP, ang Edzen at World Wide Money ay nakarehistro bilang remittance agents, foreign ex-change dealers at money changers.
Napag-alaman sa central bank na ang Edzen Enterprises at World Wide Money ay sole proprietorships na pag-aari nina Zenaida M. Artuz at Elliot M. Artuz, ayon sa pagkakasunod.
“The cancellation was due to significant violations of their Deeds of Undertaking, specifically on the commitment to strictly comply with Republic Act No. 9160 (Anti-Money Laundering Act), as amended, and its Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations, and the minimum procedures on the sale and purchase of foreign currencies by money changers/foreign exchange dealers and the transactional requirements for large value payouts by remittance agents/money changers/foreign exchange deal-ers,” paliwanag ng BSP.
