Guernsey introduces sanctions against the Maldives

Share this page

Monday 23 July 2018

On 16th July 2018, in response to concern about the situation in the Republic of Maldives (the Maldives), the EU published Council Regulation (EU) 2018/1001.

This sets out restrictive measures, including an asset freeze, which will be applicable to listed persons responsible for undermining the rule of law or obstructing an inclusive political process in the Maldives, as well as those responsible for serious human rights violations or abuses there. To date nobody has been listed by the EU under this regime.

On 20th July, the Policy & Resources Committee made the Republic of Maldives (Restrictive Measures) (Guernsey) Ordinance, 2018 to give effect to these sanctions in Guernsey. The Ordinance means that once designations of listed persons are made by the EU they can be given effect domestically, ensuring that Guernsey is able to meet its obligations in implementing international sanctions.
