Meeting of the European Parliament’s committee on organised crime, corruption and money laundering

23 April, 2013
Location: 
Brussels

MEPs are to discuss anti-money laundering following the publication by the European Commission of a proposal to revise its third anti-money laundering directive. Oxfam is calling on the European Parliament and Member States to agree on adopting national public registries where beneficial owners of companies, trusts and foundations will be compiled, in order for tax authorities to know who really owns corporate entities. In addition, Oxfam is calling EU decision-makers to promote an automatic exchange of tax information among EU countries and to list tax crime as a serious offence connected to money laundering.
