As a discussion point, does that statement provide any relevant information for law enforcement or is its purpose a disclaimer to try and avoid criticism from examiners? If it is the latter, I'd consider noting our reasoning in the SAR documentation rather than the narrative based on the following from the FinCEN Electronic filing instructions on the completion of Part V.
Provide information about the financial institution’s business policies and practices only if it is necessary for a complete understanding of the suspicious activity. DO NOT include legal disclaimers in the narrative.
It provides relevant information only to the extent that it's a "Marijuana Termination" filing which may or may not have meaning anymore and also avoid criticism from examiners. I mean, that plays in to some of my decisions to file or not already.
But I suppose you're right.
So what do people think then about including "Marijuana Termination" and then explain my reasoning for including it in my memo to file?
