EU AMENDS 2 ENTRIES ON NORTH KOREA SANCTIONS LIST

EU Regulation 2018/1009/EU amends 2 entries on the list of those subject to sanctions, with effect from 18th July, amending those for Ri Hong-sop (Former director, Yongbyon Nuclear Research Centre, and Head of Nuclear Weapons Institute) and the Munitions Industry Department (which is involved in key aspects of the DPRK’s missile programme).  This follows a change made by the UN Sanctions Committee on 9th July.
