As announced yesterday, the EU has now published its updated targeted sanctions relating to Syria.

Council Implementing Decision 2014/730/CFSP and Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 1105/2014 of 20 October 2014 add 16 individuals and 2 entities to the list of those subject to an EU asset freeze and travel ban in connection with the situation in Syria. The measures update the information relating to a number of listed individuals, and remove Dr Mohammad Nidal Al-Shaar from the list following the 3 July 2014 judgment of the General Court annulling his designation in Case T-203/12 Mohamad Nedal Alchaar v Council (see previous blog).

A list of EU sanctions in effect relating to Syria can be found in the ‘EU sanctions in force’ section of this blog.
