Any financial penalties applied by the CBB as regards the implementation of its requirements set out under Module AML, are without prejudice to the criminal sanctions available to the Bahraini courts under the Decree – Law No. 4 of 2001, with respect to the prevention and prohibition of the laundering of money. As with other financial penalties, the imposition of a financial penalty with regards to breaches of the requirements in Module AML does not prevent the CBB from also using other enforcement measures to remedy the same violation (for instance, a Direction).
