19 July 2022 International sanctions 2022
Updated sanction notification
The State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) has published an amendment to Annexes 2 and 4 of the Ordinance of March 30, 2011 on Measures against Libya (SR 9184.108.40.206).
With the decision of July 18, 2022, the responsible UN Sanctions Committee changed the list of sanctioned persons, companies and organizations. The change is directly applicable in Switzerland. On July 19, 2022, SECO therefore adjusted the sanctions database SESAM (SECO Sanctions Management), which is relevant for Switzerland, and published the change on its website .
In accordance with the provisions of the ordinance, the financial intermediaries are required to implement the bans, to freeze the assets of the sanctioned persons and to report the affected business relationships to SECO. The report to SECO does not release a financial intermediary from carrying out additional investigations in accordance with Art. 6 GwG in the event of suspicions and, if they cannot clear them up, from reporting immediately to the Money Laundering Reporting Office in accordance with Art. 9 of the Money Laundering Act.
Swiss authorities have amended the following individual Libya sanctions listing:
