PROPOSED REFORMS TO AUSTRALIA’S SANCTIONS REGIME TO TARGET CORRUPTION, CYBER-CRIME, HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS

Herbert Smith Freehills has published a legal briefing saying that the Australian Government has announced plans to implement a targeted, Magnitsky-style sanctions regime by the end of 2021.  As with other countries, such as the US and UK, reforms would expand Australia’s current country-based autonomous sanctions framework to include targeted sanctions focused on themes of conduct – such as proliferation of malicious cyber activity, gross human rights violations, grand corruption and WMD.  It provides an overview of the key recommendations and the Government’s response.
