COUNCIL DECISION 2012/285/CFSP

of 31 May 2012

concerning restrictive measures directed against certain persons, entities and bodies threatening the peace, security or stability of the Republic of Guinea-Bissau and repealing Decision 2012/237/CFSP

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on European Union, and in particular Article 29 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

On 3 May 2012, the Council adopted Decision 2012/237/CFSP concerning restrictive measures directed against certain persons, entities and bodies threatening the peace, security or stability of the Republic of Guinea-Bissau (1).

(2)

On 18 May 2012, the United Nations Security Council adopted a Resolution 2048 (2012), which imposed a travel ban on persons seeking to prevent the restoration of the constitutional order or taking action that undermines stability in the Republic of Guinea-Bissau, in particular those who played a leading role in the coup d’état of 12 April 2012 and who aim, through their actions, at undermining the rule of law, curtailing the primacy of civilian power and furthering impunity and instability in the country.

(3)

In view of the gravity of the situation in the Republic of Guinea-Bissau, additional persons should be included in the lists of persons and entities subject to the restrictive measures provided for in Decision 2012/237/CFSP.

(4)

Decision 2012/237/CFSP should therefore be repealed and replaced by this Decision,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

1.   Member States shall take the necessary measures to prevent the entry into, or transit through, their territories of:

(a)

persons listed in the Annex to UNSCR 2048 (2012), and additional persons designated by the Security Council or by the Committee established pursuant to paragraph 9 of UNSCR 2048 (2012) (‘the Committee’), in accordance with paragraph 6 of UNSCR 2048 (2012), as listed in Annex I;

(b)

persons not covered by Annex I engaging in or providing support for acts that threaten the peace, security or stability of the Republic of Guinea-Bissau and persons associated with them, as listed in Annex II.

2.   Paragraph 1 shall not oblige a Member State to refuse its own nationals entry into its territory.

3.   Paragraph 1(a) shall not apply where the Committee determines that:

(a)

travel is justified on the grounds of humanitarian need, including religious obligation; or

(b)

an exemption would further the objectives of peace and national reconciliation in the Republic of Guinea-Bissau and stability in the region.

4.   Paragraph 1(a) shall not apply where entry or transit is necessary for the fulfilment of a judicial proceeding.

5.   Paragraph 1(b) shall be without prejudice to the cases where a Member State is bound by an obligation of international law, namely:

(a)

as a host country of an international intergovernmental organisation;

(b)

as a host country to an international conference convened by, or under the auspices of, the United Nations;

(c)

under a multilateral agreement conferring privileges and immunities; or

(d)

under the 1929 Treaty of Conciliation (Lateran pact) concluded by the Holy See (State of the Vatican City) and Italy.

6.   Paragraph 5 shall be considered as applying also in cases where a Member State is host country of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).

7.   The Council shall be duly informed in all cases where a Member State grants an exemption pursuant to paragraph 5 or 6.

8.   Member States may grant exemptions from the measures imposed under paragraph 1(b) where travel is justified on the grounds of urgent humanitarian need, or on grounds of attending intergovernmental meetings, including those promoted by the Union, or hosted by a Member State holding the Chairmanship in office of the OSCE, where a political dialogue is conducted that directly promotes democracy, human rights and the rule of law in the Republic of Guinea-Bissau.

9.   A Member State wishing to grant exemptions referred to in paragraph 8 shall notify the Council in writing. The exemption shall be deemed to be granted unless one or more of the Council members raise an objection in writing within two working days of receiving notification of the proposed exemption. Should one or more of the Council members raise an objection, the Council, acting by a qualified majority, may none the less decide to grant the proposed exemption.

10.   In cases where, pursuant to paragraphs 5, 6, 8 and 9, a Member State authorises the entry into, or transit through, its territory of persons listed in Annex II, the authorisation shall be limited to the purpose for which it is given and to the persons concerned thereby.

Article 2

1.   All funds and economic resources belonging to, owned, held or controlled by natural or legal persons, entities or bodies engaging in or providing support for acts that threaten the peace, security or stability of the Republic of Guinea-Bissau and natural or legal persons, entities or bodies associated with them, as listed in Annex III, shall be frozen.

2.   No funds or economic resources shall be made available, directly or indirectly, to or for the benefit of the natural or legal persons, entities or bodies listed in Annex III.

3.   The competent authority of a Member State may authorise the release of certain frozen funds or economic resources or the making available of certain funds or economic resources, under such conditions as it deems appropriate, after having determined that the funds or economic resources concerned are:

(b)

Member States shall inform the other Member States and the Commission of any authorisation granted under this paragraph.

4.   By way of derogation from paragraph 1, the competent authority of a Member State may authorise the release of certain frozen funds or economic resources, if the following conditions are met:

(a)

the funds or economic resources in question are the subject of a judicial, administrative or arbitral lien established prior to the date on which the natural or legal person, entity or body referred to in paragraph 1 was included in Annex III or of a judicial, administrative or arbitral judgment rendered prior to that date;

(b)

the funds and economic resources will be used exclusively to satisfy claims secured by such a lien or recognised as valid in such a judgment, within the limits set by applicable laws and regulations governing the rights of persons having such claims;

(c)

the lien or judgment is not for the benefit of a natural or legal person, entity or body listed in Annex III;

(d)

recognising the lien or judgment is not contrary to public policy in the Member State concerned.

Member States shall inform the other Member States and the Commission of any authorisation granted under this paragraph.

5.   Paragraph 2 shall not apply to the addition to frozen accounts of:

(a)

interest or other earnings on those accounts; or

(b)

payments due under contracts, agreements or obligations that were concluded or arose prior to the date on which those accounts became subject to the provisions of this Decision;

provided that any such interest, other earnings and payments continue to be subject to paragraph 1.

Article 3

1.   The Council shall implement modifications to Annex I on the basis of the determinations made by the Security Council or by the Committee.

2.   The Council, acting upon a proposal by a Member State or the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, shall adopt amendments to the lists contained in Annexes II and III as required.

3.   The Council shall communicate its decision, including the grounds for the listing, to the natural or legal person, entity or body concerned listed in Annex III, either directly, if the address is known, or through the publication of a notice, providing such natural or legal person, entity or body with an opportunity to present observations.

4.   Where observations are submitted, or where substantial new evidence is presented, the Council shall review its decision and inform the natural or legal person, entity or body concerned listed in Annex III accordingly.
