SYRIA: EU COUNCIL EXTENDS SANCTIONS AGAINST THE REGIME FOR ANOTHER YEAR

A news release from the EU on 31 May advised that the EU Council extended EU restrictive measures against the Syrian regime, first introduced in 2011,for an additional year, until 1 June 2023, in light of  its continued repression of the civilian population in the country.  The EU Council also removed from the list 3 persons, so that the list now includes 289 persons targeted by both an assets freeze and a travel ban, and 70 entities subject to an assets freeze.
