COUNCIL REGULATION (EU) 2015/612

of 20 April 2015

amending Regulation (EC) No 314/2004 concerning certain restrictive measures in respect of Zimbabwe

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, and in particular Article 215 thereof,

Having regard to the joint proposal from the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and the European Commission,

Whereas:

(1)

The Union measures implementing Council Decision 2011/101/CFSP (1), including the freezing of funds and economic resources of certain natural or legal persons, entities and bodies, are set out in Council Regulation (EC) No 314/2004 (2).

(2)

Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 314/2004 lists the persons and entities benefiting from a suspension of the freezing of funds and economic resources under that Regulation.

(3)

On 19 February 2015, the Council adopted Decision 2015/277/CFSP (3) by which it removed the names of five deceased persons from Annexes I and II to Decision 2011/101/CFSP.

(4)

That measure falls within the scope of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union and regulatory action at the level of the Union is therefore necessary in order to give effect to it, in particular with a view to ensuring its uniform application by economic operators in all Member States.

(5)

On 19 February 2015, Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/275 (4) removed the names of the five deceased persons from Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 314/2004.

(6)

Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 314/2004 should therefore be amended accordingly,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
