LONDON (PRWEB) May 13, 2006
World-Check, the leading provider of structured intelligence on known heightened risk individuals, has proven once again its unique value as an early warning system. The list of 78 members of the Palestinian Legislative Council recently released by OFAC were all profiled in World-Check’s database prior to the OFAC release - some as far back as 2001.
Although the list released is not part of the SND list, all financial institutions must reject any transactions involving the individuals who were elected to the PLC on the party slate of Hamas.
David Leppan World-Check’s founder and CEO said “This shows World-Check’s dedication to being the very best when it comes to KYC and Sanction data. In addition it shows how ahead of the game World-Check is in identifying those that 'may eventually end up’ on a sanction list. We are proud of our continued achievements as the industry pioneer and leader.”

World-Check’s multi-lingual team of researchers located around the world monitor hundreds of thousands of sources including all major sanctions and regulatory lists 24/7, adding all relevant information to its highly structured database twice a day.
