The reasons for its designation include that &quot;it provides financial support to the Syrian regime&quot;. Article 14(2) of Council Regulation (EU) No 36/2012 provides that no funds or economic resources shall be made available, directly or indirectly, to or for the benefit of designated persons.

star this property answer text <p>In the 2016 Multilateral Development Review, the Department for International Development (DFID) assessed that the Commonwealth Secretariat was in need of further reform if it was to fulfil its crucial role at the heart of the Commonwealth. DFID agreed a Performance Management Agreement with the Secretariat for its future contributions to the Commonwealth Fund for Technical Cooperation. In its 2018 annual review of its support to Commonwealth institutions, DFID confirmed that the Secretariat had met all the criteria for the release of the first three tranches of support under the Agreement.</p><p>The Foreign and Commonwealth Office commissioned an external Central Assurance Assessment of the Commonwealth Secretariat earlier this year. While this Assessment did not specifically consider value for money, it reported that reasonable progress had been made in demonstrating that the internal control environment was effective.</p><p>The Secretariat's external auditors gave an unqualified opinion - with no recommendations - on the 2017/18 financial statements for all three of the main Secretariat funds.</p><p>Through our active membership of the Secretariat's Board of Governors and Executive Committee, we are committed to ensuring that the Secretariat makes efficient use of public funds, with maximum impact and value for money for its member states and their citizens.</p><p>At the request of Foreign Ministers, to fulfil a commission from Heads of Government, the Secretariat's Board of Governors has made recommendations to enhance the Secretariat's governance. Once implemented, they would make a significant difference to the effective operation of the Secretariat. We hope that they will be adopted soon.</p>

star this property answer text <p>All deaths of offenders under supervision are the subject of an internal review by the relevant probation provider, which must consider from the circumstances whether any areas of probation practice could be improved. This includes the deaths of those being supervised after release from custody. Probation providers report annually to Her Majesty's Prison and Probation Service on the numbers of deaths and their causes, and share learning points from the reviews that they have conducted. A small number of deaths under post-release supervision, including those that occur in Approved Premises, are independently investigated by the Prisons and Probation Ombudsman.</p><p> </p><p>The number of offenders who died under supervision increased from 704 in 2010/11 to 955 in 2017/18. The Offender Rehabilitation Act (ORA) was introduced on 1 February 2015 and resulted in an increase in the number of offenders on post-release supervision. While the total number of deaths under supervision has continued to increase, the number of deaths post-release fell by 8% in the last year, from 401 in 2016/17 to 367 in 2017/18.</p><p> </p><p>The National Suicide Prevention Strategy identifies people in contact with the criminal justice system as a high-risk group, and we recognise that the time following release from prison can be a particularly high-risk period for suicide and for deaths from other causes. The primary role of probation is to protect the public and prevent re-offending, and people under supervision in the community are not in the care of HM Prison and Probation Service in the way that they are when in custody. While probation staff do everything they can to help offenders find access to vital services including healthcare, housing, and treatment for drug and alcohol problems, they do not have sole responsibility for caring for them. We are conducting a review of post-release deaths, which aims to identify what further actions may be appropriate to prevent them, while recognising that a range of other organisations share responsibility for their wellbeing.</p><p> </p><p>We are also investing an extra £22m in ‘through-the-gate’ assistance for offenders, to help them find the support they need on issues such as housing, healthcare and employment, and they have the same access to these services as any other person in the community.</p><p> </p><p>The number of deaths under post-release supervision during 2017/18, broken down by time elapsed since release and by cause of death, is in the attached table. The figures are taken from probation providers’ annual reports. Care is taken when processing and analysing them, but the detail is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large-scale recording system.</p>
