GUIDELINES ON IMPLEMENTATION OF TARGETED FINANCIAL SANCTIONS IN UGANDA (PDF ATTACHMENT)
Uganda is committed to the implementation of the National Strategy on Countering Terrorism, Terrorism Financing and Proliferation Financing. The Ministry of Internal Affairs has continuously aligned government’s legal framework to match the existing risks and assessment related to Proliferation Financing with the latest being the Anti-Terrorism (Amendment) Act 2022 and subsequently the Anti- Terrorism Regulations 2022.
Countering Proliferation Financing using United Nations Security Council Resolutions requires implementation of targeted financial sanctions. The Ministry of Internal Affairs through the appropriate diplomatic measures will coordinate the implementation and enforcement of the Targeted Financial Sanctions.
The Ministry through a consultative approach developed guidelines for implementation of Targeted Financial Sanctions to assist organisations and stakeholders to be aware of the sanctions. The Ministry in liaison with Financial Intelligence Authority and Bank of Uganda will conduct outreach programmes to create awareness on the targeted Financial Sanctions.
I, therefore, call upon organisations and all stakeholders to use these guidelines in the implementation of Targeted Financial Sanctions and also acquaint themselves with the related provisions of the international and national legal framework.
