UN IMPOSES SANCTIONS ON 2 INDIVIDUALS IN SOUTH SUDAN AND EXTENDS SANCTIONS REGIME TO MAY 2019

On 13th July, a UN news release advised that the Security Council, condemning what it called the continued and flagrant violations of the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan and related ceasefires, had adopted UN SCR 2428 which renews sanctions on South Sudan to 31st May 2019.  It also imposed a travel ban and assets freeze on 2 high-ranking individuals – Lieutenant-General Malek Ruben Riak and General Paul Malong Awan.  The sanctions involve an embargo on the supply of arms and related material, and the supply of training, technical and financial assistance related to military activities or materials.  In addition, it lays out several exemptions to the country’s arms embargo — including for material and activities related to humanitarian activities — and lists details related to the inspection of shipments and cargo bound for South Sudan.  The sanctions also impose travel bans and asset freezes on designated individuals.
