Aurore Lalucq, a member of the European Parliament’s Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs, asked the AMF regulator to justify its “incomprehensible” decision to register a Binance unit as a digital assets service provider in a letter dated June 13.
Lalucq cited a statement from Britain’s financial regulator last year that said Binance was “not capable of being effectively supervised,” as well as a June Reuters report that found Binance served as a conduit for the laundering of at least $2.35 billion in illicit funds.
Binance, which processes crypto trades worth hundreds of billions of dollars each month, hailed the French registration as a “milestone achievement” in May, calling it the company’s first in Europe to provide digital asset services. Binance has stated that it wishes to establish a regional headquarters in France.
Over a dozen financial regulators have issued warnings about Binance since its 2017 Shanghai launch, ranging from its anti-money laundering compliance and consumer risks to how it was operating without a licence.
According to a January Reuters report, Binance withheld information from regulators while claiming to welcome oversight. Binance responded by saying it was raising industry standards.
Lalucq questioned the criteria for Binance’s acceptance in a letter to the AMF’s chairman.

Centralised exchange platforms also increases the hazards of fiscal crime in conflict zones, which are formerly constantly involved in arms trafficking, corruption, and terrorism backing. Both illegal players and regular druggies prefer digital currencies for anonymous deals. With these types of dealings, the proprietor and origin of the cash are hidden; Associates or mediators dealers buy and keep crypto currency on behalf of a stoner in a precarious situation.
