Libya Asset Freeze and Sanctions Update (September 2011)

Following the National Transitional Council's installation as the de facto governing force in Libya, HM Treasury has amended its asset freezing provisions.

The move is good news for the Libiyan people and British business too. Restrictions on payments, debt/asset recovery and trade can now be lifted.

33 Chancery Lane have been directly instructed by UK businesses to advise on recovery solutions and sanctions.

Although the list has been relaxed in parts, it is still very important to seek advice when dealing with any transaction, individual or person subject to the restrictions. Breaching the provisions may result in a custodial sentence and high value confiscation proceedings.
