Statement From the Chief Minister on Recent Media Reports

Nov 11, 2022

The Chief Minister, Deputy Kristina Moore, said:

“It is not possible for me to comment on live legal proceedings.

“One of Jersey's strengths is our high-quality judicial system, which alongside a highly regulated professional services industry, has assured the island's position and reputation as an internationally respected and well-regulated jurisdiction.

“The Government requires all Jersey authorities to adhere to the highest international standards, including the most stringent checks and balances.

“I have therefore requested an independent review is undertaken following recent media reports relating to an ongoing investigation led by Jersey's Economic Crime and Confiscation Unit within the Law Officers’ Department. This will ensure any lessons learned can be considered and implemented in the most expedient manner.

“My understanding is that this matter will not impact the ongoing legal proceedings. 

“I should be clear that the Jersey authorities will never make funds available to anyone designated under UK or UN sanctions. Our sanctions authority acts without fear or favour and all sanctioned individuals have access to proper license arrangements.”
