| March 25, 2014 | 0 Comments

Jersey has added a further 12 Russian and Ukrainian officials to the list of those who have been identified by the European Union as responsible for actions that undermine or threaten the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine.

The Community Provisions (Restrictive Measures – Ukraine) (Amendment No. 2) Order 2014 came into force yesterday, 24 March 2014. This amendment extends the scope of the restrictive measures that came into force on 18 March 2014, ensuring that Jersey’s sanction regime remains aligned with international developments.

The updated list of designated persons is published by the UK Treasury at
www.gov.uk/government/publications/financial-sanctions-ukraine-sovereignty-and-territorial-integrity

All Jersey financial institutions are requested to check whether they hold any accounts, funds or economic resources for the persons listed and, if they do, to freeze such accounts, funds or economic resources and report the facts to the Chief Minister’s Department.

The relevant officials at the Chief Minister’s Department may be contacted at international@gov.je
