PM condemns EU’s ‘blacklist’ of Caribbean countries

first_imgLocalNews PM condemns EU’s ‘blacklist’ of Caribbean countries by: Dominica Vibes News – June 23, 2015 A decision by the European Union’s tax watchdog to blacklist several Caribbean countries has been condemned by Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit.The EU’s executive Commission published a blacklist of 30 countries it says are not doing enough to crack down on tax avoidance on Thursday 18 June 2015. Among the list of countries blacklisted by the EU are Antigua and Barbuda, Anguilla, Barbados, Bahamas, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Grenada, Montserrat, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the US Virgin Islands.“Dominica wants to place on record its condemnation of the blacklisting of our sister Caribbean and CARICOM countries,” Prime Minister Skerrit told a press briefing on Tuesday 23 June 2015.“We maintain that there is no basis for such blacklisting, it was done without consultation, it was done without engaging of those countries to draw to those countries, if there would have been any matter of concern to the European Union,” Mr Skerrit continued. Mr Skerrit, who is also the Minister of Finance, said although Dominica was not listed among the countries, it must record its disagreement with the EU’s decision as this decision impacts Member States of CARICOM and the Organization of the Eastern Caribbean States (OECS).“Dominica wants to stand in solidarity with those sister countries in their fight to clear their good name and to restore the countries in the categories in which they ought to be as jurisdictions where our financial system is properly regulated,” PM Skerrit stated.
