Ah… last week’s OFSI Syria update has been found

So, when OFSI sends out a sanctions notice, they provide a link to the underlying document – it’s a little black box that says “click here”.

Well, last week, they used one notice to update both the Belarus and Syria programs – but only had one little black box (for Belarus). I wrote back to HM Treasury and did not hear back.

Well, it happened again today. And, in looking at the email, I see what they did… they included the 2nd link in the text – here’s today’s:

Further, 1 individual has been amended in the Syria financial sanctions regime. The notice can be found here.

So, I went back and looked at last week’s Syria update, for which I had not seen that… and it’s there… so, here is the full listing for the person who was delisted on the 8th from the Syria program:
