EU AMENDS ITS LIST OF HIGH-RISK THIRD COUNTRIES

On 13 January, Dentons reported that, on 7 January, the EU Commission officially removed Mauritius from its list of high-risk third countries which identifies third-country jurisdictions with strategic deficiencies in their AML/CFT regimes that pose significant threats to the financial system of the EU.  The EU Regulation will add Burkina Faso, Cayman Islands, Haiti, Jordan, Mali, Morocco, the Philippines, Senegal and South Sudan to the List and deletes The Bahamas, Botswana, Ghana, Iraq and Mauritius.
