  1. Who decides what is malign information? What this article proposes is in effect reverting western society back to Elizabethan and earlier times, where the state decided what could or could not be spoken in plays, or written in publications and pamphlets. In seeking to engage the financial services sector in the financial deplatforming of unapproved views, the author seems to be championing a joining of state and private sector in suppression of free speech which we last saw in Europe in the mid 20th century.

    Transaction monitoring, including sanctions screening, is targeted against known threats who have committed and will commit criminal acts. That is why it is reasonable to expect the financial sector to engage in the efforts to identify and prevent.

    I would be interested to know if this is the official position of EY.
