MONEYVAL issues a revised public statement on Bosnia and Herzegovina

At the 47th Plenary, MONEYVAL considered the progress of Bosnia and Herzegovina under the Compliance Enhancing Procedures and decided that, while progress has been made since the last meeting on amendments to the criminalisation of financing of terrorism, overall progress on the Criminal Code and the implementation of by-laws to the preventive law remained insufficient.

The 47th Plenary considered it was obliged to follow the decision of the previous plenary to invoke the next Step 4 of the Compliance Enhancing Procedures if overall progress was insufficient by April. Accordingly, Step 4 was invoked and a revised public statement has been issued.
