The European Union has just reviewed the list of people subject to sanctions in the Ivory Coast and decided to renew sanctions against all of them (except one, see below) in a new Decision and Regulation published on 13 May 2014. The EU has published an notice informing everyone re-listed that they have two months in which to challenge their designations in the European court in Luxembourg.
The Council of the EU also amended the grounds for keeping Marcel Gossio designated. We reported here that Marcel Gossio had lost his application to challenge his listing in the European Court last year, but the Council has now decided that he should be re-listed for different reasons.
The EU’s legal measures imposing sanctions on the Ivory Coast are on the ‘sanctions in force’ section of this blog.
