The United Kingdom has issued sanctions against a number of individuals, including a former Governor of Nineveh province in Iraq.
Nawfal Hammadi Al-Sultan is alleged to have misappropriated public funds intended for reconstruction efforts, and to have improperly awarded contracts and other state property.
He is currently serving a five-year prison sentence in Iraq, and was previously sanctioned by the United States.
