In order to consolidate its sanctions regime in respect of Sudan, the EU has repealed Council Regulation (EC) No. 131/2004, Council Regulation (EC) No. 1184/2005 and Council Decision 2011/423/CFSP. In their place, the EU has introduced Council Regulation (EU) No. 747/2014 and Council Decision 2014/450/CFSP, which relate to Sudan, and Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No. 78/2014 and Council Decision 2014/449/CFSP, which relate to South Sudan.
No substantive amendments have been made as a result of the consolidation, other than to Council Regulation (EU) No. 747/2014, which has been amended in order to add Santino Deng and Peter Gadet to the list of individuals subject to an asset freeze and travel ban. Deng is a commander of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army and has been listed in connection with violations of the 23 January Cessation of Hostilities Agreement. Gadet is the leader of the anti-government Nuer militia and has been listed for his involvement in an attack on the city of Bentiu in April this year, in which more than 200 civilians died.
