BURMA (EUROPEAN UNION FINANCIAL SANCTIONS) REGULATIONS 2018

These UK Regulations (SI 2018/529) make provision relating to the enforcement of Council Regulation (EU) 2018/647 of 26th April in UK law.  New financial sanctions provisions have been added into the Council Regulation with effect from 27th April.  The EU has agreed new autonomous measures to condemn the ongoing widespread and systematic human rights violations committed by the Burma military and security forces, including rape and killings, and calling on Burma to ensure that security, the rule of law, and accountability prevail in Rakhine, Kachin and Shan States. The new EU Regulation provides for targeted restrictive measures against military officers of the Burma Armed Forces who are responsible for the serious human rights violations.
