In January 2001, the Government of Bahrain enacted an AML law that criminalizes the laundering of proceeds derived from any predicate offense. The law stipulates punishment of up to seven years imprisonment and a fine of up to one million Bahraini dinars (BD) for convicted launderers and those aiding or abetting them. If organized criminal affiliation, corruption, or disguise of the origin of proceeds is involved, the minimum penalty is a fine of at least 100,000 dinars and a prison term of no less than five years.
