EP may reject MLD4 high risk list – again

The Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee and the Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Committee have again rejected the Commission’s list of high-risk jurisdictions under MLD4. This is maybe not surprising, given the Commission had made only one change from the previous version, and the Committees’ opinion is that the Commission should not just follow the FATF list, but should make its own determinations. The vote now goes to plenary in the European Parliament.
