The Council of the European Union has published a new Implementing Decision and Regulation amending some of the listings on its Syria sanctions measures (the asset freeze and travel ban). HM Treasury’s notice about the new measures is here.
The Council has “updated” the information concerning two entities, Overseas Petroleum Trading and Tri Ocean Trading, and has re-listed Samir Hassan, whose previous listing had been annulled by the European Court in Case T-572/11 (see previous blog here). The Council has not re-listed Mr Tabbaa, who won his annulment case on the same date (blog here). The Council has not appealed against that judgment, and therefore the EU restrictive measures no longer apply to him.
The EU’s Syria sanctions are on the ‘sanctions in force’ section of this blog.
