EU RENEWS SANCTIONS ON IRAN AND BURMA, AND LIFTS GUINEA ARMS EMBARGO

The Council of the EU has today renewed for another year its sanctions on Burma/Myanmar, and on people and companies said to be “responsible for serious human rights violations” in Iran (which is separate from the list of those said to be connected with Iranian nuclear proliferation).

The EU has also lifted the arms embargo previously imposed on the Republic of Guinea.

The new provisions (published on 15 April 2014) are here and on the sanctions in force section of this blog.  The Council has also published Notices for the attention of everyone re-listed in the annex to these provisions informing them that they have two months in which to challenge their designations in the European court.
