EU Extends Sanctions on Iran over Human Rights Violations

On 11 April 2017, the European Union extended until 13 April 2018 its restrictive measures responding to serious human rights violations in Iran.

These measures consist of:

  • a travel ban and an asset freeze against 82 people and one entity

These measures were first put in place in 2011. The legal acts are published in the Official Journal of 12 April 2017. They were adopted by written procedure.

One Response to EU Extends Sanctions on Iran over Human Rights Violations

    The EU has totally became a useless and stupid organization. It’s time for the nations to
    create their own Exit just as England did. Germany, France must have had a nervous
    breakdown, because they are making no sense and are committing suicide.
    It appears that little Hungary has more sense to say the least.
