EU implements 19 UN de-listings from Iraq sanctions

The EU has de-listed 19 entities from its sanctions on Iraq, which freeze the assets of the previous Government of Iraq, and related people and entities, if those assets were located outside Iraq on 22 May 2003.  This implements a UN decision to de-list the entities from UN sanctions on 16 September 2016.  The UN and EU de-listed 5 other entities earlier this month (see previous blogs here and here).

See Commission Implementing Regulation 2016/1695 amending Council Regulation 1210/2003.
