June 18, 2021: SECO adds 1 to counter terror sanctions


18 June 2021 Financial sanction 2021

Updated sanction notification 

The State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) has published an amendment to Annex 2 of the Ordinance of October 2, 2000 on Measures against Persons and Organizations with Connections to Usama bin Laden, the Al-Qaida group or the Taliban (SR 946.203).By resolution of June 17, 2021, the responsible UN sanctions committee changed the list of persons, companies and organizations sanctioned in this context. The change is directly applicable in Switzerland. SECO has therefore adapted the SESAM (SECO Sanctions Management) sanctions database, which is relevant for Switzerland, and published the adaptation on its website .

The financial intermediaries are requested to block the relevant assets immediately and to report such business relationships to SECO in accordance with the provisions of the ordinance. Reporting to SECO does not release a financial intermediary from reporting to the Money Laundering Reporting Office immediately if the requirements are met in accordance with Art. 9 of the Money Laundering Act.
