Press Release by the Ministry for Home Affairs, Security, Reforms, and Equality

Further to the Guidance Note on the listings by OFAC of Maltese individuals and entities issued by the Sanctions Monitoring Board on 31 March 2022, the Maltese Government is initiating the process of deprivation of Maltese citizenship of a person that appeared on the sanctions as published by the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control involving Maltese legal and natural persons.

In his capacity as the responsible minister for matters relating to Maltese citizenship, the deprivation process is being initiated by the Minister for the Interior, Security, Reforms and Equality.

This is being done in accordance with the Maltese Citizenship Act and the respective Subsidiary Legislation, as these provide that the responsible minister may deprive persons who have been registered or naturalised with Maltese citizenship in those circumstances established by the same legal provisions.
