The briefing (pdf) of 22 November 2019 by EPRS on the proposed new European commissioners shows that four propesed commissioners will be responsible for AML:
- One of the priorities of Valdis Dombrovskis will be strenghtening the anti-money laundering/counter-terrorism financing supervisory framework in the banking sector.
- Margaritis Schinas is supposed to become responsible for internal security, including tackling money laundering and terrorist financing more efficiently, the briefing says.
- Didier Reynders is the proposed Justice commissioner. In his domain new legislation was adopted in regard of serious cross-border crime, such as terrorism, money laundering, non-cash payment fraud and fraud against EU financial interests
- On of the priorities and challenges of Ylva Johansson (Home Affairs) is to reinforce the authority of the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) to allow investigation and prosecution of cross-border terrorism; and underlining the risks related to money laundering and terrorist financing
Regarding the latest developments in AML/CTF the briefing refers to this document of 12 April 2018 on the fifth anti-money laundering directive (pdf).
