OFSI removes 11 from DPRK sanctions, plus makes other changes

Amendments to the DPRK regime

Amendments have been made to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea financial sanctions regime.

11 entries have been removed from the Consolidated List. They do however remain subject to other sanctions under the Sanctions Act. Further information is available in the UK Sanctions List.

Further, amendments have been made to entries in the Central African Republic, Counter-Terrorism (Domestic), Counter-Terrorism (International), Democratic Republic of the Congo, Libya, and South Sudan financial sanctions regimes. They remain on the consolidated list and subject to financial sanctions. 

OFSI’s consolidated list of asset freeze targets has been updated to reflect these changes.

And the following 11 entities (OFSI apparently does not break out vessels as a separate category) have been removed:

I still find it bizarre that the UK changes the Last Updated date when they remove a listing… who’s going to see it, other than maybe internal systems in the UK government (or firms that retain historical data – if they choose to update, rather than just mark the listing deleted)?
