Last week's major developments in sanctions - Nov. 1st to Nov. 5th, 2021

Monday, November 1st

- OFSI updated its Charity Sector Guidance to address the changes in Afghanistan since Taliban took over the power in the country. (Here)

Tuesday, November 2nd - France added ten individuals to its sanctions list. (Here) Some of the names (e.g. M. Abdelkader BELHADJ DJELLOUL) were previously on the french sanctions list for six months followed by some time being off the list. This practice of France, in my opinion, makes the asset freezing less effective because the listed person had time to move its assets in between the two designation periods.

Wednesday, November 3rd

- The U.S. added four entities to the Entity List of BIS. (Here) Two of these are located in Israel, one in Russia, and one in Singapore. (Department of State press release)

Thursday, November 4th

- Apparently there are some movements about the DPRK sanctions in the United Nations. One of the discussion points at the Department of State press briefing was about a draft UNSC resolution circulated by Russia and China to ease UN sanctions against DPRK. (Here and DW coverage of the story)

Friday, November 5th

- The committee in charge of UNSC sanctions in Yemen updated its Guidelines. (Here)
