UK SANCTIONS AND ANTI-MONEY LAUNDERING BILL: UPDATE

On 15th February, a House of Lords Briefing paper was issued updating progress on this Bill following its passage through the House of Lords, and prior to its introduction into the House of Commons on 20th February.  Amendments made in the Lords included to allow for sanctions to be imposed to resolve armed conflict and protecting civilians in conflict zones; promote compliance with international humanitarian and human rights law; prevent the proliferation of WMD; and promote democracy, human rights, the rule of law and good governance.  The Government promised that would propose amendments in the House of Commons to restrict the power present in the Bill to change the definition of terrorist financing.
