UK lawmakers head to Jersey, aim to request public BO registries

Two UK lawmakers behind an amendment forcing Overseas Territories to publicly list asset and company owners are back at it.

This time they’ve set their sights on Crown Dependencies.

Thursday (7 June) Dame Margaret Hodge announced via Twitter that she and MP Andrew Mitchell will be heading to Jersey this autumn.
They’re trying to persuade leaders there to voluntarily implement public registries. If not they will seek to have it imposed.

Last month the UK Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering law was passed. It imposes public registries on OTs, an amendment to add Crown Dependencies to the law was rejected by lawmakers.
