The Anti-Money Laundering Administration, in cooperation with the Mihajlo Pupin Institute - Computer Systems, has developed a search engine that lists the persons subject to United Nations sanctions, i.e. "marked persons". The search engine allows all interested persons to quickly and easily check whether they are in contact, i.e. have business cooperation with the mentioned category of persons, in order to timely implement the actions and measures prescribed by the Law on Restriction of Disposal of Property in order to prevent terrorism and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction ("Official Gazette of the RS”, No. 41/2018). This search engine allows you to directly search the UN Security Council list of flagged persons in relation to Resolutions 1267 (1999), 1989 (2011) and 2253 (2015) regarding ISIL, Al-Qaeda and related individuals, groups of persons, businesses and other entities, Resolution 1718 (2006) and successor resolutions on the DPRK, as well as Resolution 1988 (2011) on the Taliban and related individuals, groups of persons, businesses and other entities.
