Bodies for combating international terrorism

In the awareness that international terrorism constitutes one of the most serious threats to world peace and security, to fundamental human rights, to the rule of law and to the democratic order of countries, the Republic of San Marino has for some time now been assuming obligations and undertaking a virtuous process aimed at preventing and combating this phenomenon in all its forms and manifestations, in line with international standards in this field.

Permanent Counter-Terrorism Commission

International terrorism constitutes a serious threat to the world peace and security, fundamental human rights, rule of law and the democratic legal system of countries. For nearly a decade, the Republic of San Marino has been working to effectively tackle terrorism in its complex and changing forms. It has established a legal framework, which is kept constantly in line with the UN and EU global strategies for the prevention and fight against terrorism as well as with the recommendations and requirements of international bodies active in the field of terrorism, such as the FATF. This led to the adoption of Law no. 21 of 31 January 2019  "Establishment of bodies involved in the fight against international terrorism". Such legislation represents San Marino’s will to comply and align itself with international standards as well as to act and combat terrorism. It establishes three bodies in San Marino involved in the fight against international terrorism, with the aim of organising the system and implementing the national strategy.

 

The above-mentioned Law establishes the Permanent Counter-Terrorism Commission, the Counter-Terrorism Squad and the Counter-Terrorism Crisis Unit.

 

The Permanent Counter-Terrorism Commission (hereinafter referred to as PCTC) is chaired by the Director of the Department Foreign Affairs, and it is composed of the Director of Department of Institutional Affairs and Justice, the Director of the Department of Finance and Budget,  the Commanders of the Police Forces, the Head of the Civil Protection and the Director of the National Central Bureau of Interpol.

 

The PCTC has the following functions: discussing, analysing and monitoring international terrorism, according to the information available to its members and to competent international bodies; drawing up and updating the Strategy and the National Security Plan on terrorism containing the measures to pursue, prevent, combat and effectively tackle alleged or real terrorist threats. The functioning of the Commission is defined by Regulation no. 14 of 27 November 2019, which sets out the procedures for convening and regulating its meetings.

Committee for Restrictive Measures (CRM)

With a view to the progressive alignment with the FATF standards, in compliance with the international obligations undertaken by the Republic of San Marino to counter terrorism, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and their financing, and the activity of countries that threaten international peace and security, and to allow a rapid implementation of the United Nations Security Council resolutions, the Great and General Council of the Republic of San Marino, by means of Law no. 57 of 29 March 2019, has established the Committee for Restrictive Measures (CRM).


The CRM is presided over by the Director of the Foreign Affairs Department and is composed of the Director of the Department of Institutional Affairs and Justice, the Director of the Department of Finance and Budget, the Commanders of the Police Forces, the Director of the NCB-Interpol and the Asset Recovery Office (ARO) and the Director of the Financial Intelligence Agency. 


The CRM is the competent authority for national and international designations of individuals, groups or entities for the purpose of their inclusion in the lists maintained by the United Nations Security Council (or one of its Committees) and in the national list, in order to allow the implementation of restrictive measures of a financial nature and concerning transit bans or embargoes; particular attention is paid in this regard to the so-called freezing measures (targeted financial sanctions) with respect to assets or funds belonging to those who are linked to terrorist activities or proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and their financing. The CRM is also the competent authority for delisting and revocation of the above measures. 


In the performance of its functions, the Committee collaborates, through requests for data, information or submission or delivery of acts or documents, with the Judicial Authority, the Police Authority, the National Central Bureau of Interpol, the Financial Intelligence Agency, the national public Administrations and the corresponding foreign authorities. The CRM also collaborates with the Technical Commission for National Coordination referred to in Article 15 bis of Law no. 92 of 17 June 2008 and subsequent amendments and integrations.


The CRM is also the competent authority to make to and receive from corresponding foreign authorities requests for the freezing of assets or funds against individuals or entities included in the national list; moreover, in implementation of the provisions of UN Security Council Resolution 1373, it plays the important role of strengthening national cooperation among institutions, authorities and offices, as well as of enhancing international cooperation in preventing and combating criminal activities and in ensuring international peace and security.

Pursuant to Law no. 57 of 29 March 2019, the Congress of State, upon proposal of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, enforces without delay, by means of a decision, the above-mentioned restrictive measures imposed by United Nations Security Council resolutions.

 

Freezing of assets or funds becomes effective on the date of adoption of the Congress of State Decision; updates to the United Nations lists are deemed to have been transposed automatically when they are received by the Department of Foreign Affairs and by the Financial Intelligence Agency, namely the two focal points receiving the relevant communications of the United Nations Security Council or one of its competent Committees.

 

The Agency immediately notifies the Court, Police Forces, Public Administrations responsible for keeping the public registers and obliged parties of the updates to the United Nations lists and transmits the decisions adopted by the Congress of State.

 

The Consolidated List, constantly updated by the Security Council, which brings together all lists of natural and legal persons subject to restrictive measures, is also available.

National list

No individuals or entities on the national list.
