Wednesday 26 April 2023

Deputy Jonathan Le Tocq, Guernsey's political lead for External Relations, has formally reaffirmed the Island's commitment to combatting financial crime at a high-level Ministerial meeting, being held at the invitation of Poland's Minister of Finance in Warsaw yesterday (Tuesday 25th April 2023).

The meeting was attended by Ministers and high-level delegates from 32 countries and international organisations who have a role in preventing financial crime around the world.

In a written declaration, all jurisdictions including Guernsey affirmed their commitment to international and regional efforts to combat money laundering, terrorism financing and the financing of proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and to join the Ministers' Deputies of the Council of Europe in strongly condemning the continued aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine and confirm our full support for Ukraine and its people. The meeting also provided the opportunity for bilateral meetings with Ministers from the other Crown Dependencies and the United Kingdom to discuss a variety of common issues relating to combatting financial crime.

Deputy Le Tocq said:

"Guernsey has long been committed to playing a full part in international efforts to combat all forms of economic crime. This visit has enabled us to reiterate that commitment by voicing our support for the next phase of MoneyVal's work."
