NORTH KOREA: EU ADDS 8 INDIVIDUALS AND 4 ENTITIES INVOLVED IN FINANCING OF NUCLEAR PROGRAMME TO SANCTIONS LIST

On 21 April, the EU advised the addition of 12 names to its sanctions lists.  This latest move brings the total number of persons listed autonomously by the EU to 65.  In addition, the EU has frozen the assets of 13 entities as part of its own sanctions regime.  It has also transposed all relevant UN Security Council Resolutions, which impose sanctions on 80 persons and 75 entities currently listed by the UN.  The new listings include individuals who have held leading positions in institutions that are engaged in the development of the missile programme and individuals and entities that have engaged in sanctions evasion activities that could generate funds for the illegal weapons programmes.
