§ Lord Harris of Haringey
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What changes have been made to the implementation of European Union financial sanctions against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. [HL2079]
§ Baroness Scotland of Asthal
EC Regulation 723/2000 amending EC Regulation 1294/1999 concerning a freeze on funds and a ban on investment in relation to the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) was adopted by the Council of the EU on 6 April. The regulation, which enhances the implementation of the existing financial sanctions against the FRY, came into force on 8 April. Among other changes, it clarifies the scope of the freeze of funds by tightening the definition of "the Government of the FRY" and "the Government of the Republic of Serbia".
