  • Aruba OT Sanctions Orders in Force/Legislative Framework

    As a Aruba Overseas Territory the Aruba Islands must implement all UK sanctions regulations which have been made and modified under the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018 (the Sanctions Act), and have been extended to the VI by the UK government in the form of new Overseas Territories (OT) Sanctions Orders.

    These Sanctions Orders provide for the legislative framework which enables the relevant authorities to take the necessary action to, among other things, freeze the funds/assets of designated persons and entities. Failure to comply with restrictions and prohibitions in relation to sanctions imposed under the relevant Sanctions Orders applicable to the VI constitutes an offence that may result in the imposition of penalties or imprisonment when a conviction is secured.
