PEP position annotations by OpenSanctions

Entity categorisation decisions by the OpenSanctions team.

The annotations dataset consists of detail added by the OpenSanctions team to improve on the data from our other sources with detail from our knowledge and desktop research. This includes e.g. that a position like "Advisor to the president of Russia" is a PEP with national government level of influence, while "President of the water polo club" might also be a position included in an investigative database, but should not be considered a PEP in our dataset.
