COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) No 798/2004

of 26 April 2004

renewing the restrictive measures in respect of Burma/Myanmar and repealing Regulation (EC) No 1081/2000

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular Articles 60 and 301 thereof,

Having regard to Council Common Position 2004/423/CFSP of 26 April 2004 renewing restrictive measures in respect of Burma/Myanmar (1),

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission,

Whereas:

(1)

On 28 October 1996, the Council, concerned at the absence of progress towards democratisation and at the continuing violation of human rights in Burma/Myanmar, imposed certain restrictive measures against Burma/Myanmar by Common Position 1996/653/CFSP (2). In view of continued severe and systematic violations of human rights by the Burmese authorities, and in particular continuing and intensified repression of civil and political rights, and the failure of those authorities to take steps towards democracy and reconciliation, the restrictive measures against Burma/Myanmar were subsequently extended several times, most recently by Common Position 2003/297/CFSP (3) on Burma/Myanmar, which is due to expire on 29 April 2004. Some of the restrictive measures imposed against Burma/Myanmar were implemented at Community level by Council Regulation (EC) No 1081/2000 (4).

(2)

In view of the current political situation in Burma/Myanmar, as witnessed by the failure of the military authorities to enter into substantive discussions with the democratic movement concerning a process leading to national reconciliation, respect for human rights and democracy, the continuing detention of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and other members of the National League for Democracy and the continuing serious violations of human rights, including the failure to take action to eradicate the use of forced labour in accordance with the recommendations of the International Labour Organisation's High-Level Team report of 2001, Common Position 2004/423/CFSP stipulates that the restrictive measures against the military regime in Burma/Myanmar and those who benefit most from its misrule and those who actively frustrate the process of national reconciliation, respect for human rights and democracy should be maintained.

(3)

The restrictive measures provided for by Common Position 2004/423/CFSP include inter alia a ban on technical assistance, financing and financial assistance related to military activities, a ban on the export of equipment which might be used for internal repression, and the freezing of funds and economic resources of members of the Government of Burma/Myanmar and of any natural or legal persons, entities or bodies associated with them.

(4)

These measures fall within the scope of the Treaty and, therefore, in order to avoid any distortion of competition, Community legislation is necessary to implement them as far as the Community is concerned. For the purpose of this Regulation, the territory of the Community should be deemed to encompass the territories of the Member States to which the Treaty is applicable, under the conditions laid down in that Treaty.

(5)

It is desirable to align with recent practice the provisions concerning the ban on technical assistance, financing and financial assistance related to military activities, and those concerning the freezing of funds and economic resources.

(6)

For the sake of clarity, a new text containing all the relevant provisions as amended should be adopted, replacing Regulation (EC) No 1081/2000, which should be repealed.

(7)

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

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

For the purposes of this Regulation, the following definitions shall apply:

1.

(f)

4.

‘economic resources’ means assets of every kind, whether tangible or intangible, movable or immovable, which are not funds but can be used to obtain funds, goods or services;
