Renewal of UN Security Council Sanctions against South Sudan

Pursuant to Section 3A of the International Obligations (Economic & Ancillary Measures) Amendment Act, 2019, supervised financial institutions (“SFIs”) and the general public are hereby informed that, on 28th May 2021, the United Nations Security Council (“UN Security Council”) renewed sanctions on South Sudan, inclusive of financial measures outlined in paragraph 12 of the UN Security Council Resolution 2206 (2015).

The Central Bank hereby requires that all SFIs licensed in The Bahamas, as a matter of high priority, review their client records to determine whether or not they hold funds, other financial assets or economic resources which are either owned or controlled directly or indirectly by the persons or entities listed on the Sanctions List or any person acting on their behalf or at their discretion, and report both positive and negative findings to the Central Bank.

Any positive findings (“hits”) are required to be reported to the Financial Intelligence Unit and the Attorney General.
