La Commission européenne a proposé ce mercredi d'ajouter sept nouveaux pays, dont l'Arabie Saoudite, à la liste de l'UE des pays tiers luttant de manière insuffisante contre le blanchiment de capitaux et de financement du terrorisme. L'Union européenne vient d'intégrer à cette liste l'Arabie Saoudite. Cette initiative de la Commission européenne devra encore recevoir le feu vert du Parlement européen et des pays de l'Union.

Pour chaque pays, la Commission a évalué le niveau de menace réelle, le cadre juridique et les contrôles mis en place pour prévenir les risques de blanchiment de capitaux et de financement du terrorisme, ainsi que leur mise en œuvre effective. Toutefois, le fait de se retrouver sur cette liste ne déclenche pas de sanctions, mais il oblige les banques européennes à appliquer des contrôles renforcés sur les opérations financières impliquant des clients ou des établissements financiers dans ces pays.

"L'argent sale est le moteur de la criminalité organisée et du terrorisme", a poursuivi Mme Jourova, exhortant les pays sur la liste "à remédier rapidement à leurs carences". "Certains des pays figurant sur la nouvelle liste se trouvent déjà sur la liste actuelle de l'UE, qui comprend 16 pays", explique le communiqué. "La Commission est disposée à collaborer étroitement avec eux afin de résoudre ces problèmes dans notre intérêt mutuel".
