UN, SECO add 2 to counter terror sanctions

News

31 December 2021 Financial sanction 2021

Updated sanctions report

The State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) has amended Annex 2 to the Ordinance of 2. October 2000 on measures against persons and organizations with links to Usama bin Laden, the group “Al-Qaïda” or the Taliban (RS 946.203).

By order of 29. December 2021, the responsible UN Sanctions Committee amended 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.

Financial intermediaries are invited to block the corresponding assets immediately and to report such business relationships to SECO in accordance with the provisions of the regulation. The notification to SECO does not exempt a financial intermediary from immediately reporting to the Anti-Money Laundering Reporting Office in accordance with Article 9 of the Anti-Money Laundering Act if conditions are met.

Swiss officials added the following person:
