The Financial Investigative Unit, within the Haitian National Police; and the Financial Intelligence Unit, within the Ministry of Justice, cooperated with the United States in anti-money laundering initiatives to improve the ability to detect funds acquired through criminal activity, including funds that could be acquired through terrorist networks. The Haitian government drafted counterterrorism legislation in 2008 but it was not enacted by Parliament in 2009. In addition, the country has accepted the terms of the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism, but has not formally signed the Convention.
