Financial sanction

Updated sanction message 

The State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) has published an amendment to Annex 2 of the Ordinance of 2 October 2000 on Measures against Persons and Organizations Related to Usama bin Laden, the Al-Qaïda or the Taliban (SR 946.203).

By decision of 20 August 2019, the relevant UN Sanctions Committee amended the list of persons, companies and organizations sanctioned in this context. The change is directly applicable in Switzerland. On 21 August 2019, SECO therefore adapted the SESAM (SECO Sanctions Management) sanction database, which is relevant for Switzerland, and published the adaptation on its website .

Financial Intermediaries are requested to immediately block the relevant assets and to report such business relationships to SECO in accordance with the provisions of the Regulation. Notification to SECO does not release a financial intermediary from reimbursing reports to the Money Laundering Reporting Office without delay if the requirements are fulfilled, in accordance with Art. 9 of the Money Laundering Law.
