On 21 March 2011, by Decision 2011/169/CFSP, the Council decided that the restrictive measures imposed in respect of the Republic of Guinea should be amended in light of the political situation and of the Report of the International Commission of Inquiry mandated to establish the facts and circumstances of the events of 28 September 2009 in Guinea.

Regulation (EU) No 1284/2009 should be applied in accordance with those rights and principles.

(4)

The power to amend the list in Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 1284/2009 should be exercised by the Council, in view of the political situation in the Republic of Guinea, and to ensure consistency with the process for amending and reviewing the Annex to Decision 2010/638/CFSP.

(5)

The procedure for amending the list in Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 1284/2009 should include providing designated natural or legal persons, entities or bodies with the grounds for listing, so as to give them an opportunity to submit observations. Where observations are submitted, or substantial new evidence is presented, the Council should review its decision in light of those observations and inform the person, entity or body concerned accordingly.

(6)

In order to ensure that the measures provided for in this Regulation are effective, it should enter into force on the day of its publication.

(7)
