PHOENIX (AP) - A state official says Western Union Financial Services Inc. has successfully implemented all the main recommendations in an agreement aimed at combating money laundering from criminal activity related to drug and human trafficking along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich Brnovich says the company’s efforts have been vetted by a court-appointed monitor overseeing implementation of the 2014 agreement.

According to Brnovich, Western still needs to complete some secondary recommendations under the agreement and that those should be done by next year.

Brnovich says the compliance program should be a model for others in the financial services industry.
