Text size Aa Aa

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – The European Commission said on Thursday it had adopted an opinion urging Malta’s anti-money laundering supervisor to fully comply with European Union rules to prevent financial crime.

In a separate decision, the European Commission sued Luxembourg for not fully applying EU anti-money laundering rules, asking the EU Court of Justice to charge a lump sum and daily penalties until Luxembourg takes the necessary action.
