Updated sanction report
The State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) has amended the Annex to the Ordinance of 5. December 2014 on measures against Yemen (RS 9188.8.131.52).
By decision of 26. In September 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 therefore on the 28th. September 2022 adapted the sanctions database SESAM (SECO Sanctions Management), which is relevant to Switzerland, and the adaptation published on its website.
Financial intermediaries are invited, in accordance with the provisions of the regulation, to implement the prohibitions, block the assets of the sanctioned persons and report the business relationships concerned to SECO. The notification to SECO does not exempt a financial intermediary from providing additional clarifications in the event of suspicions in accordance with Art. 6 AMLA and if he cannot dispel them, to report immediately to the reporting office for money laundering in accordance with Art. 9 of the Money Laundering Act.
Here’s SECO’s notice:
