What To Do If On Sanctions List: Rahman Ravelli Outline

Author: Azizur Rahman  29 March 2022

Rahman Ravelli wrote an article about the options for those who believe their assets may be wrongly targeted by sanctions.

With Russia’s invasion of Ukraine seeing many individuals and organisations with Russian links being sanctioned, Rahman Ravelli explained what those at risk of future sanctions can do. Their piece, which focused on aspects of the Middle East and sanctions, was published by Lexis Middle East Law Alert.

Rahman Ravelli said that sanctions can be effective and appropriate as a tool to punish bad actors and their supporters. But they emphasised that some sanctions that are imposed can be overly broad and can wrongly include innocent parties. This is why, they argued, such innocent parties who may be at risk of being sanctioned need to be proactive in devising strategies to shield and preserve their assets.  

Their piece considered the five main issues that need to be considered when creating such strategies: ownership, location, currency, maintenance, and engagement.

The right strategy, they concluded, will depend on the exact circumstances that a particular sanctions target faces.
