Updated Sanction Notice

The State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) has amended Annex 1 to the Ordinance of 13. May 2009 on measures against Somalia (RS 946.231.169.4) published.

By decision of 18. In February 2022, 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 decisive for Switzerland, and published the adjustment on its website.

Financial intermediaries are requested 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 reporting immediately to the Anti-Money Laundering Reporting Office in accordance with Art. 9 of the Anti-Money Laundering Act if the conditions are met.

In line with the United Nations 751 Sanctions Committee, Swiss authorities added:

SSID: 180-47596 Foreign identifier: SOi.021 Name: Ali Mohamed Rage
