UK:  REPORT ON THE OPERATION OF THE ASSET FREEZE PROVISIONS OF THE COUNTER TERRORISM SANCTIONS REGULATIONS 

On 15 December, HM Treasury advised the release of a report, the first independent review of any counter terrorism sanctions regime commissioned by HM Treasury under the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act, 2018 (SAMLA).  Among other things, the report notes that, so far the only person designated is an individual who was first designated under previous legislation in 2013, and it remains to be seen whether greater use is made of the regime after the Economic Crime Act amendments which loosen the statutory criteria for designation.
