Syria: Sanctions

Question for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office

UIN HL3902, tabled on 9 November 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government why they removed five Syrian individuals from the UK Sanctions List on 30 September.

Following a routine review of the UK's autonomous sanctions, on 30 September 2021 the FCDO revoked the designation of five Syrian individuals, as the listings were no longer compliant with regulations. This does not signal a change in our Syria policy and is not a sign of rapprochement with the regime.
