Details

In 2014 the earlier Sudan legislation was repealed and replaced by Council Regulation (EU) No. 747/2014 and the Sudan (European Union Financial Sanctions) Regulations 2014. A separate South Sudan regime was created at the same time.

In 2004 the European Union imposed measures in the EU prohibiting the supply of technical, financial and other assistance related to military activities, with exemptions, directly or indirectly to any person, entity or body in, or for use in Sudan.

In 2005 the United Nations imposed travel restrictions, with exemptions, and an assets freeze on designated individuals considered to be impeding the peace process, constituting a threat to stability in Darfur and the region, committing human rights violations and violating measures set out in previous resolutions (primarily related to an arms embargo).
