The EU has added François Yangouvonda Bozizé, Nourredine Adam and Levy Yakete to the list of persons designated under Council Regulation (EU) No. 224/2014. All three individuals have been designated for engaging in or providing support for acts that undermine the peace, stability or security of the Central African Republic. Adam’s grounds for listing also include (i) being involved in planning, directing, or committing acts that violate international human rights law or international humanitarian law, and (ii) providing support for armed groups or criminal networks through illegal exploitation of natural resources. As a result of their listing, the individuals are now subject to an asset freeze.
