EU delists prominent Syrian businessman

syriaflagLast week, the EU de-listed Samir Hamsho and his companies Al Buroj Trading and Syria Steel/Hmisho Steel from its sanctions measures on Syria. Samir Hamsho was listed for being a prominent Syrian businessman benefitting from and supporting the Syrian regime, for having been appointed to the Homs Chamber of Commerce by the Minister of Industry in 2014, and for owning the designated companies named above.

The changes to the EU’s Syria listings are made by Council Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/2350 implementing Council Regulation (EU) 36/2012 and Council Implementing Decision (CFSP) 2015/2359 implementing Council Decision 2013/255/CFSP.
