South Africa’s central bank has fined China Construction Bank (CCB) 75 million rand ($6 million) for non-compliance with the country’s financial intelligence act, it said on Friday.

“It should be noted that the administrative sanctions were not imposed because CCB was found to have facilitated transactions involving money laundering or the financing of terrorism but because of weaknesses in the bank’s control measures,” the central bank said in a statement.
