Further to our previous blog post, the EU has responded to the recent military coup in Myanmar with restrictive measures on eleven individuals.

This adds to pre-existing restrictive measures that have been in place since April 2018, as detailed in our previous blog post. These measures included an embargo on arms and equipment that can be used for internal repression, an export ban of dual use goods for use by the military and border guard police, and export restrictions on equipment that can be used to monitor communications.

The EU has already previously designated 14 persons for alleged human rights violations against the Rohingya population in June and December 2018 meaning the total list of restricted persons is now 25.
