Sputnik News, 4 Jan 2019.)
 
Information on the case emerged in April when media reports said that 3 Flemish companies (AAE Chemie, ANEX and Danmar Logistics) were summoned by an Antwerp court for having exported 96 tonnes of isopropanol to Syria in violation of EU sanctions introduced in 2013.
 
The Antwerp court has obliged the companies to obtain special export licenses for this certain substance to allow deliveries to the Middle Eastern country.
 
The three companies have said they had been exporting the product to Syria for over 10 years, noting that the customs office, which controlled exports to Syria, had never told them anything was wrong with their shipments. The Belgian Finance Ministry, which oversees the customs, subsequently offered a financial settlement to the companies. However, they refused to accept it.
 
The 7sur7 news outlet reported yesterday (Thursday) that prosecutors had asked the court to fine the companies 750,000 euros ($854,000) and to sentence heads of two companies to 18 months in prison.
 
The defendants’ lawyers said their clients had not been aware of the restrictions on chemicals deliveries to Syria, asking for them to be acquitted. The lawyers also claimed that the customs had failed to manage effectively the firms’ export operations.
 
The customs, in turn, defended itself by saying that the export document had not been filled in correctly by the companies, and launched a criminal investigation into the controversial shipments.
 
The verdict in the case is expected to be made in late January. Isopropanol, commonly known as rubbing alcohol, might be reportedly used for the chemical weapons production.

COMMCOMMENTARY

 
* Authors: Wim Nauwelaerts, Esq.,
wnauwelaerts@sidley.com, +32 2-504-6210; and Paul Greaves, Esq.,
pgreaves@sidley.com, +32 2-504-6461. Both of Sidley Austin LLP.
 
On December 17, 2018, European Commission Decision (EU) 2018/1996 (the ‘Decision‘) was published in the Official Journal of the European Union. The Decision lays down rules designed to reconcile the rights of individuals respecting their personal data, with the need for effective trade defence and trade policy investigations in the EU.
 
The power to adopt the Decision is provided for by
EU Regulation 2018/1725 (the ‘
Regulation‘), which regulates the processing of personal data by the European Union’s institutions, bodies, offices and agencies (‘
Union Institutions and Bodies‘). The Regulation imposes obligations on Union Institutions and Bodies with respect to personal data, many of which reflect the rules that the EU General Data Protection Regulation (the ‘
GDPR‘) imposes on companies, individuals and other organizations. The rules imposed by the Regulation include:
 
  – Obligations to provide certain ‘transparency’ information to individuals when processing those individuals’ personal data;
  – Obligations to comply with requests from individuals where they wish to, for example, access their personal data, have such personal data deleted, or restrict the processing of their personal data; and
  – Obligations to inform individuals, in certain circumstances, where there has been a data breach involving those individuals’ personal data.
 
The Decision recognises that during trade defence and trade policy investigations, the European Commission (the ‘
Commission‘) will inevitably collect and process personal data (for example, during verification visits). In some circumstances, the Commission’s compliance with certain obligations under the Regulation could jeopardize the Commission’s trade defence and trade policy activities. The Decision therefore sets out, for example:
 
  – Rules to be followed by the Commission to inform individuals of the processing of their personal data when the Commission is conducting those investigations;
  – The conditions under which the Commission can restrict the application of certain rights and obligations provided for by the Regulation; and
  – Additional requirements to be complied with where the Commission restricts the application of those rights and obligations. This includes a requirement on the Commission to keep a record which, amongst other things, sets out the justification for the restriction.

ENEDITOR’S NOTES

EN_a112
. Bartlett’s Unfamiliar Quotations

(Source: Editor)
* Henry George Bohn (4 Jan 1796 – 22 Aug 1884; was a British publisher. He is principally remembered for the Bohn’s Libraries which he inaugurated. These were begun in 1846, targeted the mass market, and comprised editions of standard works and translations, dealing with history, science, classics, theology and archaeology.)
  – “Violence in the voice is often only the death rattle of reason in the throat.”
 
* Paramahansa Yogananda (5 Jan 1893 – 7 Mar 1952; born Mukunda Lal Ghosh, was an Indian yogi and guru who introduced millions of Indians and westerners to the teachings of meditation and Kriya Yoga through his organization Yogoda Satsanga Society of India and Self-Realization Fellowship. In 1946, he published his autobiography, titled Autobiography of a Yogi which is on the list of the “100 best spiritual books of the 20th Century.” The book has been regularly reprinted ever since, and is known as “the book that changed the lives of millions.”)
 – “The season of failure is the best time for sowing the seeds of success.”
  – “Remain calm, serene, always in command of yourself. You will then find out how easy it is to get along.”
 
Friday funnies: 
 
* Never criticize someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes.  That way, when you criticize them, you’ll be a mile away, and you’ll have their shoes.
 
* Q. What do Alexander the Great and Winnie the Pooh have in common?
   A. Same middle name.
 
* I couldn’t believe that the highway department accused my son of being a thief.  But when I got home, all the signs were there.
