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.
