EU sanctions N Korea military officials

The EU has added 18 people and 1 entity to its sanctions listings against N Korea.  The new listings primarily target high-ranking military officials said to be involved in bodies that are key to supporting N Korea’s nuclear, ballistic, and WMD-related programmes.  The additions bring the total number of listed people on the EU’s sanctions on N Korea to 66 and entities to 42, under which they are subject to travel bans and asset freezes.

See Commission Implementing Regulation 2016/780 amending Regulation 329/2007 and Council Decision (CFSP) 2016/785 amending Decision 2013/183/CFSP.
