EU renews Libya sanctions on 3 people obstructing its unity government

The EU has renewed the listings of 3 people listed under its sanctions on Libya for 6 months. The 3 people are Agila Gwaider, President of the Libyan Council of Deputies in the House of Representatives, Khalifa Ghwell, previously Prime Minister of Libya’s rival parliament in Tripoli the General National Congress, and Nuri Abu Sahmain, previously its President. They were first listed in April this year for allegedly opposing the internationally recognised unity government in Libya (see previous blog). In addition, the EU has updated the reasons for their listings.
