Details

Concerned that former President Charles Taylor and his associates were actively undermining Liberia’s transition to democracy, in 2004 the UN Security Council imposed an asset freeze on the assets of the exiled leader, immediate members of his family and other close allies and associates.

In October 2015, the European Union repealed these financial sanctions.
