The European Commission (EC) has informed the Tunisian embassy in Brussels. This is the official withdrawal of Tunisia from the list of high-risk third countries. In particular, money laundering.By The Economiste Maghrebin
Indeed, this list concerns countries whose measures to combat money laundering and the financing of terrorism have strategic shortcomings. This is what the Presidency of the Republic reveals.
The European Commission already removed Tunisia from this list on 7 May 2020. In addition to other countries, including Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ethiopia, Guyana, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic and Sri Lanka.
In addition, the Tunisian Commission for Financial Analysis (CTAF) announced on 11 May that the European Commission’s decision will be effective. From the 21st day following the publication of the delegated regulation in the Official Journal of the European Union.
In the end, it is therefore an official notification that confirms the exit of Tunisia from this list which is not flattering for the country. Allowing it to open up to the reconquest of markets and investments to which it did not have access. Because of the bad reputation of being on that list.
