European Parliament’s blacklisting of Tunisia as country exposed to money laundering and terrorist financing, “unfair” (UTICA)

The Tunisian Confederation of Industry, Trade and Handicrafts (UTICA) said the decision to blacklist Tunisia as a country heavily exposed to money laundering and terrorist financing is “unfair.”

In a press release on Thursday, the confederation estimated that “this vote is unfair to Tunisia, a country endeavouring to combat terrorism and corruption and achieve its economic transition.”

The UTICA also expressed displeasure, considering that the European Parliament’s vote will “have a negative impact on Tunisia’s image and relations with international institutions and on its ability to attract foreign investment.”

The employers’ organisation laid emphasis on the urgent need to take all the necessary measures to get out of this situation, calling “to mobilise all diplomatic and political means, to revise the country’s monetary policy and reveal all the circumstances and shortcomings that led to the European Parliament’s vote.”
