Central African Republic – United Nations – Adoption of sanctions at the Security Council (New York, December 17, 2015)

The UN Security Council decided to add Haroun Gaye and Eugène Ngaïkosset to its sanctions list on December 17; their incitement to violence and conduct are disrupting the smooth running of the political process in the Central African Republic.

The sanctions include the freezing of assets and a travel ban. They now affect seven individuals and one entity.

Through these new sanctions, the Security Council sends a strong message to all those who try to undermine the stabilization efforts and use violence to obstruct the election process that the people of the Central African Republic are waiting for.
