The European Union has published a notice saying it intends to maintain its restrictive measures on Iury Viktaravich Zhadobin, who is listed on the EU’s Belarus sanctions measures (which impose an EU wide asset freeze and travel ban on those listed), and will amend the statement of reasons given for his inclusion.
Currently, Mr Zhadobin is listed for being Belarus’ Minister of Defence, responsible for approving “the repressive decisions agreed at ministerial level, including the decision to repress the peaceful demonstrations on 19 December 2010”.
Mr Zhadobin appears in Annex I to Council Regulation (EC) 765/2006 and the Annex to Council Decision 2012/642/CFSP. The notice informs Mr Zhabodin that he may submit a request to the Council to obtain the new reasons before 31 March 2015.
A list of EU sanctions in force against Belarus is in the “sanctions in force” section of this blog.
