Possible further EU Libya designations

The EU Council has published its latest conclusions on the situation in Libya.  They reaffirm the EU’s “readiness to support the internationally recognised Government of National Accord”.  They noted that, in addition to the sanctions it introduced this month on 3 people said to have obstructed the implementation of the Libyan Political Agreement (see previous blog), the EU may list additional people found to have threatened the peace, stability, or security of Libya or undermined its political transition.  The Council says it will review its sanctions should the behaviour of the listed people change.
