New Cohort of Master in Forensic Accounting & Financial Criminology Students

Congratulations to all students who have just completed their AFC738 course on Money Laundering and Specialized Frauds at the Faculty of Accountancy, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM). Besides topics on money laundering, this semester, the course has added other Specialized Frauds which cover offences such as bankruptcy fraud, matrimonial fraud, e-commerce fraud, corruption, identity fraud and insurance.  In implementing the students-centred and blended learning approaches, the continuous assessments have required the students to (i) prepare a video on their selected fraud investigation, and (ii) start a blog on their choice of fraud.  To add practitioners' input to the course, three speakers have been invited to give lectures.  SAC Mohd Noor Firdaus from the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) talked on the legislation Anti-Money Laundering, Anti Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Crime Act (AMLATFAPUA) 2001 and money laundering cases in Malaysia.  Tuan Kanakaraja A/L Muthusamy from the Anti Corruption Commission (SPRM) spoke on topics related to corruption, bribery and the Anti-Corruption Act.  Mr Mohd Rashid Azahari bin Tan Sri Musa spoke on various topics on specialised frauds such as identity fraud and bankruptcy fraud.
