EU updates terrorism sanctions list

EU CommissionIn December 2001, the EU adopted Council Common Position 2001/931/CFSP, which (inter alia) imposed asset freezing measures against a number of persons, groups and entities deemed to be “involved in terrorist acts”.

Today, the EU updated that list by adopting Council Decision (CFSP) 2018/475 and Council Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/468 (13 individuals and 20 groups/entities are currently listed). Consequently, Council Decision (CFSP) 2017/1426 and Council Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/1420 have been repealed.
