SWISS COURT UPHOLDS SANCTIONS ON UKRAINIAN DELISTED BY EU

On 16 June, the EU Sanctions Blog reported that the Swiss Federal Supreme Court has dismissed a delisting request from Swiss sanctions by Yuriy Ivanyushchenko, a former Ukrainian parliamentarian whose assets have been frozen since 2016.  The EU annulled his listing in 2017 because it was based on inconsistent or irrelevant evidence, but the Swiss court took into account that criminal investigations in Ukraine are on-going, and mutual legal assistance is being provided by Swiss authorities.
