Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and Serbia is no longer subject to financial sanctions.

Detail

In 1998 the European Union imposed a freeze on the funds of the governments of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) and the Republic of Serbia. In 2001, the financial sanctions were amended to cover only those funds belonging to Mr Slobodan Milosevic, and certain members of his family and other close associates. In October 2014, the European Union repealed these financial sanctions.
