EXPLANATORY NOTE
(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation.)
This Order provides for enforcement of financial sanctions prohibiting financial transfers between the State and another country, as outlined in Council Regulation (EC) No. 174/2005, as amended, or Council Regulation (EC) No. 560/2005, as amended, concerning restrictive measures against Côte d’Ivoire. The financial sanctions include:
• a prohibition on financial assistance related to military activities in Côte d’Ivoire,
• a prohibition on financial assistance related to internal repression in Côte d’Ivoire, and
• the freezing of funds and economic resources of persons designated as constituting a threat to the peace and national reconciliation process in Côte d’Ivoire and other persons determined as being responsible for serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law in Côte d’Ivoire or who are determined to be in violation of the arms embargo.
This S.I. updates and replaces S.I. No. 584 of 2010 to take account of Council Regulation (EU) No. 25/2011 of 14 January 2011 which amends Council Regulation (EC) No. 560/2005 of 12 April 2005 to provide for the statement of reasons for listings and the informing of listed persons. Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 85/2011 of 31 January 2011 and Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 348/2011 of 8 April 2011 amend the list of persons and entities to be listed. This S.I. also takes account of Council Regulation (EU) No. 330/2011 of 6 April 2011 which provides for additional derogations and prohibits certain transactions in respect of bonds and securities.
The Order provides that the Central Bank of Ireland may issue instructions for the purpose of giving full effect to the financial sanctions and requires compliance with such instructions.
The Financial Transfers Act 1992 allows for control of financial transfers between the State and other countries, creates an offence for breach of the provisions of any Order made under it and provides for appropriate penalties.
