Further to the Statement of OFAC, as published on 5 March 2024, 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 responsibility for matters relating to Maltese citizenship, the deprivation process is initiated by the Minister for Home Affairs, Security and Employment.
