Letter to ADIs: Sanctions against Syria and Libya

Please note the self-explanatory letter from the Reserve Bank of Australia.

The Reserve Bank of Australia has been directed by the Australian Government to
take steps under the Banking (Foreign Exchange) Regulations 1959 to amend the autonomous targeted financial sanctions against Syria to cover additional persons and entities, and to remove certain entities from the list of those subject to autonomous targeted financial sanctions against Libya.

Details of the new individuals and entities subject to financial sanctions can be
accessed via the Reserve Bank website at:

An electronic copy of the list of names in Excel format is also available from the
Reserve Bank website.

Transactions involving the transfer of fluids or payments to, by the order of, or on
behalf of such persons or entities are prohibited.
