Hubert the Friar tells a tale which perhaps speaks more to his own prejudices against the corrupt summoner whose predilection for extortion forms the basis of the tale than against the summoner, although the unrepentant summoner does end up damned for his practices. Some might argue that sanctions are borne from similar contradictions; some cases of sanctions are clear-cut, others are more political in nature, and double-edged. This panel will review recent sanctions (Iran, Russia), the applicability of the OFAC sanctions language in the Model Form and other investment agreements, and appropriate pre-commitment sanctions diligence. The panel will also consider European Union sanctions, including in light of recent divergences between US and EU sanctions.
