AAP logoAAP 10/11/2016

An employee of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission has faced court charged under anti-money laundering and counter terrorism financing laws.

Mahmoud Daher, 40, is alleged to have accessed restricted data contrary to the Criminal Code Act and made a false document contrary to the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism Financing Act.

He appeared in Sydney's Downing Centre Local Court on Thursday and was bailed to reappear on December 20.

ASIC suspended Mr Daher without pay after he was arrested last month.

It said there was no evidence that the alleged offences involved any of the commission's regulatory operations or enforcement activities.
