EU 2nd re-listing of Syrian businessman Kaddour was lawful

CJEU1The EU General Court has upheld Khaled Kaddour’s 2016 re-listing: Kaddour v Council T-461/16.

On 13 November 2014, the EU General Court annulled his original listing on the basis that the Council had failed to provide evidence to support the claim that he had maintained a professional link with Maher Al-Assad or provided financial support to the Syrian regime (previous blog). The Court then upheld his 2015 re-listing (previous blog) (and now his 2016 re-listing too) because the Court said the Council had now provided “a body of precise and consistent evidence” capable of demonstrating that the applicant still had links with certain key figures of the Syrian regime.
