Slovenia no longer under MONEYVAL supervision

Strasbourg, 07 May (STA) - Slovenia has further improved its measures to fight money-laundering and funding of terrorism, found the most recent report by the Council of Europe's Committee of Experts on the Evaluation of Anti-Money Laundering Measures and the Financing of Terrorism (MONEYVAL). This means the country will no longer be under enhanced supervision.

Slovenia has improved its compliance with the standards set up by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). It has been ruled compliant with 11 of the FATF's 40 standards and largely compliant with the rest, after addressing the only remaining partly-compliant assessment, for prosecution of financial terrorism, the Council of Europe said on Tuesday.

MONEYVAL therefore decided that Slovenia would no longer be subjected to heightened supervision, meaning it would not have to report on its progress annually.

The country ended up under heightened supervision after failing to address in three years following a mutual evaluation report in 2017 all or at least the majority of shortcomings as regards technical compliance.
