US TREASURY DEVELOPING NEW AUTHORITIES TO TARGET TURKEY FOR ANY POTENTIAL HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES OR DESTABILISING ACTIONS IN SYRIA

On 11th October, a US Treasury news release advised that, given Turkey’s ongoing military offensive in north-eastern Syria, President Trump intends to sign an Executive Order providing for new sanctions.  It will give authority to designate individuals and entities of the Government of Turkey involved in human rights abuses or actions leading to the further deterioration of peace, security, and stability in north-eastern Syria.  It also will give the Treasury the authority to impose secondary sanctions on those engaging in knowing and significant transactions with designated individuals and entities of the Government of Turkey.
