Cape Town - The Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC) Bill was adopted by Parliament on Tuesday amid fierce criticism from opposition parties against President Jacob Zuma's decision to refer the bill back to Parliament in the first place.

Opposition MPs laid into Zuma for wasting Parliament's time by referring the FIC Bill back to the National Assembly in November due to "constitutional reservations" and implied it was done with ulterior motives.

The bill will once again be sent to Zuma for ratification after another round of public hearings and deliberations which resulted in minor amendments to the original bill that had been passed in May last year.
