EU removes FARC from its terrorism sanctions

In September last year, the EU suspended its terrorism sanctions on Colombian guerrilla movement FARC, in recognition of the peace agreement signed between FARC and the Colombian government (see previous blog). The EU has now removed FARC from its terrorism sanctions listings.

See Regulation 2017/2061 amending Regulation 2580/2001, Implementing Regulation 2017/2064 implementing Regulation 2580/2001, Decision 2017/2072 updating and amending Common Position 2001/931/CFSP, and Decision 2017/2073 amending Common Position 2001/931/CFSP.
