Sanctions Compliance – is your Company Safe?

With the recent news about Cyprus Corporate and Law Service Providers and individuals, being placed under sanctions imposed by the USA and UK Governments, the need for a robust AML framework, KYC, KYB and Customer Screening solutions, is now more pressing than ever, and eBOS has the solution!

According to a statement by the president of the Cyprus Bar Association, Christos Clerides, to the Cyprus News Agency on last week, “Cypriot Lawyers are committed only by the EU and UN sanctions and not by those imposed by the USA and the UK”. This nonetheless, did not stop the USA and UK from imposing their own sanctions with dire economic and reputational consequences, both for the firms as well as Cyprus as a country. More specifically, the UK imposed a travel ban, an asset freeze and trust services sanctions to two Cypriot Lawyers, and even proceeded with freezing operational transactions, having as a consequence for their staff not to be able to get paid!
