EU ADDS 8 NAMES TO ITS SYRIAN SANCTIONS LISTS – UK FOLLOWS SUIT

EU Regulation 2020/1649/EU added 8 names to its existing Syrian sanctions lists.  These are newl- appointed ministers listed on the basis that they “share responsibility for the Syrian regime’s violence against the civilian population”. A Notice from HM Treasury on 6 November confirmed that the names had also been added to the UK Consolidated List.
