The U.S. Departments of State, Treasury, Commerce, and Labor have issued a new Advisory (the "Advisory") urging American businesses and investors to exercise caution when engaging with Sudanese State-Owned Enterprises ("SOEs") and military-controlled companies. According to the Advisory, recent actions by Sudan's Sovereign Council and security forces put U.S. businesses, individuals, and investors at risk in the country and the region. The Advisory strongly recommends renewed vigilance including due diligence with respect to human rights, KYC controls, and other compliance measures.
