New look for HMT e-alerts: South Sudan sanctions

 

Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation

 

New South Sudan financial sanctions targets  

 

 

Today, three individuals were added to the UK’s consolidated list of financial sanctions targets under the South Sudan sanctions regime, bringing the total up to nine under this regime. 

South Sudan’s Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Michael Makuei Leuth, was one of the additions along with two officers linked to the Sudan People’s Liberation Army. 

These listings represent the first time the EU has initiated sanctions against this regime. Previous South Sudan listings originated from the UN and were adopted by the EU. 

Further sanctions are being imposed on South Sudan because of the deteriorating humanitarian and security situation in the country. 

The implementation of Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2018/164 added the following persons:
