In October 2021, the FATF announced the removal of Mauritius from the list of high-risk third countries with regards to anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing (AML/CFT), also known as “Grey List“. The country had previously been listed in February 2020.
This delisting was a recognition of Mauritius’ progress in addressing deficiencies in technical compliance identified in its Mutual Evaluation. Mauritius is now in enhanced follow-up and continues to inform the ESAAMLG of the progress made in improving the implementation of its AML/CFT effectiveness measures.
The EU Global Facility on AML/CFT warmly congratulates the partner country for its efforts in combating money laundering and terrorist financing. Since the launch of our technical assistance activities in 2019, our support has been unwavering.
The EU Global Facility has provided continuous technical assistance through various training and activities to help Mauritian authorities and AML/CFT actors rectify the strategic deficiencies in its national anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing framework to be removed from the list.
