[01 June 2014] Public Statement on Bosnia and Herzegovina

MONEYVAL is today issuing a public statement on Bosnia and Herzegovina.

At the 44th MONEYVAL plenary meeting (March 31 – April 4, 2014), the Committee adopted the attached public statement under Step 3 of its Compliance Enhancing Procedures in the light of continued lack of progress on legislation to address MONEYVAL’s concerns. The Committee however deferred its issue until 1 June 2014 in order to allow Bosnia and Herzegovina further time to adopt all necessary amendments to the preventive Law and the Criminal Code.

The necessary legislation has not been adopted by the Parliament of Bosnia and Herzegovina within the MONEYVAL deadline. Accordingly the Chairman has authorised the issuing today of this public statement, as adopted by MONEYVAL in April 2014.
