This update provides a snapshot of the UK’s use of its targeted sanctions regimes between December 2022 and 20 April 2023. ‘Targeted sanctions regimes’ include Global Human Rights Sanctions (GHRS), which address human rights abuses, Global Anti-Corruption Sanctions (GACS), which target corruption anywhere in the world (together known as ‘Magnitsky sanctions’), as well as country-specific sanctions regimes which are used to address specific issues (such as human rights or rule of law issues) in relevant countries. Such targeted sanctions can be used against individual persons and entities.
