European Union finance ministers agreed Tuesday that eight jurisdictions, including much-criticized Panama, should be removed from the bloc's blacklist of tax havens, one month after the list was set up.The detailed commitments made by the eight jurisdictions who were removed from the list have not been made public, despite calls to do so by EU tax commissioner Pierre Moscovici."The EU is rushing to take countries off the blacklist without it being clear what they have actually committed to improve; this is further undermining the process," said Aurore Chardonnet, of the anti-poverty group Oxfam.She urged the EU to make public the commitments, echoing calls from lawmakers from several political groupings in the European Parliament.Nine jurisdictions remain on the blacklist.
