EU ADDS 5 INDIVIDUALS TO SYRIA SANCTIONS LIST – ALL MEMBERS OF SAME FAMILY

On 21 February, the EU adds 5 members of the Makhlouf family to its sanctions lists after the death of Mohammed Makhlouf in September 2020.  He had been a sanctioned person and the EU says that there is a risk that the assets inherited by his family members will be used to support the activities of the Syrian regime, and will flow directly into the regime’s possession, potentially contributing to the regime’s violent repression of the civilian population.
