CySEC investigated the case and eventually find out that the brokerage did not comply with the Prevention and Suppression of Money Laundering Activities Law, as well as defied several laws relating to the proper conduct of client’s funds.

Shareholders' fine

The shareholders of FX Pulp namely Mr Said Salem, Mr Shaher Hasanain were also recently hit with administrative fines by the regulator.
