On 5 December 2013 the United Nations Security Council, concerned at the continuing deterioration of the security situation in the Central African Republic, imposed an arms embargo on the Central African Republic. This was followed on 28 January 2014 by a travel ban and asset freeze in connection with individuals who act to undermine the peace stability and security of CAR or who violate the arms embargo.
Council Regulation (EU) No. 224/2014 implemented the measures in UNSCR 2127 (2013) and 2134 (2014) including the freezing of funds and economic resources of persons designated by the UN Sanctions Committee or the Security Council
