EU adopts a common plan to sanction human rights abusers

"It will send a clear signal to those responsible: there will be consequences", says the representative of Foreign Affairs. Christian Solidarity Worldwide applauds the decision.

“The promotion and protection of human rights remain a cornerstone and priority of EU external action”, the European Union said as it presented its first-ever global human rights sanctions regime.



The common framework for all 27 member states targets individuals, entities and bodies “responsible for, involved in or associated with serious human rights violations and abuses worldwide, no matter where they occurred”.



The EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell, said the “landmark agreement” will allow the European Union to respond to “serious human rights abuses and violations worldwide. It will send a clear signal to those responsible: there will be consequences”.



Restrictive measures of this regime include travel bans applying to individuals, the freezing of funds, and to prohibition of making making funds availabe to those listed.



Genocide, crimes against humanity and other serious human rights violations or abuses such as torture, slavery, extrajudicial killings, arbitrary arrests or detentions, are acts that will cause the EU's targeted sanctions.



Governments that could fall under this regime are those of Belarus and Venezuela, among others.



 



Christians welcome plan



Freedom of religion organisation Christian Solidarity Worldwide was among the groups that welcomed this new EU plan.



The “comprehensive and relatively swift agreement by the 27 EU Member States is an encouraging indication that despite economic and political differences there is a common belief in human rights as the basic tenet of democratic governance among Member States”, CSW said.
