EU adds 3 people to South Sudan sanctions list

EU6.jpgThe EU has added 3 people “involved in serious human rights violations” to its South Sudan sanctions list, see: Council Implementing Decision (CFSP) 2018/168 and Council Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/164. This action was taken in view of the “deteriorating humanitarian and security situation in South Sudan, and considering the lack of commitment by some actors to the ongoing peace process”.

This is the first occasion in which the EU has imposed targeted measures under its South Sudan sanctions regime in addition to those sanctioned by the UN Security Council. EU press release here.
