NEW UK Global Anti-Corruption sanctions names 22 individuals
26 April 2021 - the United Kingdom has launched the Global Anti-Corruption sanctions regime.
The global anti-corruption sanctions regime
- Is aimed at preventing and combatting serious corruption (bribery or misappropriation of property).
- Impose sanctions on persons designated due to involvement in serious corruption or because they are linked to those involved in serious corruption.
- Impose asset freezes to deter those who are, or have been, involved in serious corruption.
- Replaces the Misappropriations (Sanctions) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020 regime concerning misappropriation of state funds from any country outside the UK.
The Global Anti-Corruption Sanctions Regulations 2021 ensure UK sanctions relating to serious corruption are implemented effectively.
On 26 April 2021 the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office updated the UK Sanctions List on GOV.UK.
This list provides details of those designated under regulations made under the Sanctions Act.
- 22 individuals have been added to the Global Anti-Corruption regime.
- These individuals are on the consolidated list and are subject to an asset freeze.
