MEPs confirm Commission blacklist of countries at risk of money laundering

Despite intense efforts by some MEPs, they failed to achieve the 376-vote absolute majority needed to reject the inclusion of Tunisia, Sri Lanka, and Trinidad and Tobago to the European Commission's list of non-EU countries considered to have strategic deficiencies in their anti-money laundering and terrorism financing regimes.
