in April 2009, the G20 leaders agreed on tougher efforts
against the world's tax havens as a result of the global
economic crisis. In May, 5 executives of San Marino's
largest bank and oldest financial institution, Cassa di
Risparmio, were arrested and charged with money laundering.
In an effort to reduce tax evasion, in July, Italy gives
amnesty to ice cream Italians who take their money home from
tax havens. The San Marino government declares in August
that it has made changes in line with the OECD's financial
transparency recommendations to be removed from the
organization's "gray list".
The November 2012 election was won by the Christian
Democratic Alliance San Marino Bene Comune, which got 35
seats in the 60-seat state council, the other Christian
Democratic Alliance Intesa per il Paese got 12, while the
left-wing alliance Cittadinanza Attiva got 9.
