EU AML/CTF blacklist

Question for written answer E-004220/2020
to the Commission
Rule 138
Clare Daly (GUE/NGL)

The EU’s AML/CTF blacklist system has been criticised as racist [1] and as ‘a clear manifestation of Europeans’ longstanding penchant for domination, exploitation and brutality’. It has been criticised for the glaring omission of predominantly white, non-EU jurisdictions such as Gibraltar, Russia and the USA which are well known as money-laundering hotspots, and for the disproportionate inclusion of economically weak, non-white countries whose level of economic activity (including money laundering) is insignificant relative to that of EU Member States and other omitted countries.
