UN to expand list of CAR sanctions targets

The UN Security Council has decided to impose more asset freezes and travel bans on people and entities engaging in or providing support for acts that undermine the peace, stability, or security of the Central African Republic, and to add to the list those responsible for the recent outbreak of violence.

The Presidential Statement unanimously adopted by the Security Council also expresses concern that the travel ban is not being fully upheld, and warns that facilitating the travel of a listed person may lead to the facilitator being listed.  France is currently drawing up a list of possible new targets.
