THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Whereas:

(1)

On 18 January 2012, the Council adopted Regulation (EU) No 36/2012.

(2)

In view of the gravity of the situation in Syria, additional persons should be included in the list of natural or legal persons, entities or bodies subject to restrictive measures as set out in Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 36/2012. In particular, all Syrian Government Ministers should be designated in view of their collective responsibility for the violent repression against the population in Syria.

(3)

The restrictive measures should be maintained against former ministers of the Syrian Government since they may still be considered to be associated with the regime and its violent repression against the civilian population. The entries for those persons should therefore be amended.

(4)

Furthermore, two persons and one entity should be removed from the list of persons and entities subject to the restrictive measures.

(5)

In accordance with Council Decision 2012/634/CFSP of 15 October 2012 amending Decision 2011/782/CFSP concerning restrictive measures against Syria (2), Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 36/2012 should therefore be amended accordingly,
