Thad McBride Quoted in USA Today on Addition of Kim Jong Un to U.S. Sanctions List

USA Today

Media Mentions

July 6, 2016

Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Thad McBride was quoted in an article in USA Today that addressed the addition of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to the U.S. sanctions list. In addition to the North Korean leader, 22 additional individuals and entities were designated and added to the sanctions list for human rights abuses. As Thad points out in the article, "the sanctions are mostly symbolic, especially since they include Kim Jong Un, but more action could follow." These designations follow the "executive order signed by President Obama in March [giving] the U.S. Treasury broad authority 'to cut them (North Korea) off from the U.S. economy. What the government has been doing is piece-by-piece and person-by-person ratcheting up the sanctions.'"

The full article, "U.S. Puts N.K. Leader Kim Jong Un on Sanctions List for Human Rights Abuses," was published by USA Today on July 6, 2016, and is available online.
