COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) No 1294/1999

of 15 June 1999

concerning a freeze of funds and a ban on investment in relation to the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) and repealing Regulations (EC) No 1295/98 and (EC) No 1607/98

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

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

Having regard to Common Position 98/326/CFSP of 7 May 1998 defined by the Council on the basis of Article J.2 of the Treaty on European Union concerning the freezing of funds held abroad by the Governments of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) and the Republic of Serbia(1), Common Position 98/374/CFSP of 8 June 1998 defined by the Council on the basis of Article J.2 of the Treaty on European Union concerning the prohibition of new investment in Serbia(2), as well as to Common Position 1999/318/CFSP of 10 May 1999 adopted by the Council on the basis of Article 15 of the Treaty on European Union concerning additional restrictive measures against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia(3),

Having regard to the proposal from the Commission;

Whereas:

(1) The continued violation by the Governments of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and the Republic of Serbia of the relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions and the pursuance of extreme and criminally irresponsible policies, including repression against citizens, constitute serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law;

(2) An extension of the scope of the present legal framework concerning the freezing of funds held abroad by the Governments of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and the Republic of Serbia, and concerning the prohibition of new investment in the Republic of Serbia will significantly increase the pressure on those governments;

(3) Therefore, the scope of the provisions of this legal framework should be extended to cover certain assets, other than funds and financial resources, which may generate funds or other financial resources for the governments concerned, and to cover companies, undertakings, institutions and entities owned or controlled by those governments, as well as persons acting for or on behalf of those governments, as well as the acquiring or extending of a participation in, ownership of or control of real estate or companies, undertakings, institutions or entities which are owned or controlled by the Government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia or of the Republic of Serbia;

(4) The measures contained in this Regulation should be proportionate to the objectives pursued by the Council with regard to the Kosovo crisis and the measures should not lead to severe damage to the interests of the Community;

(5) There is a need to provide for certain specific exemptions;

(6) A procedure should be laid down for amending the Annexes to this Regulation and for granting specific authorisations to avoid serious damage to industry, companies or the interests of the Community;

(7) Circumvention of this Regulation should be countered by an adequate system of information, and where appropriate, remedial measures, including additional Community legislation;

(8) Competent authorities of the Member States should, where necessary, be empowered to ensure compliance with this Regulation;

(9) It is desirable that sanctions for violations of the provisions of this Regulation can be imposed as of the date of entry into force of this Regulation;

(10) There is a need for the Commission and Member States to inform each other of the measures taken under this Regulation and of other relevant information at their disposal in connection with this Regulation;

(11) For reasons of transparency and simplicity the main provisions of Council Regulations (EC) No 1295/98(4) and No 1607/98(5) have been incorporated into this Regulation, and, therefore those Regulations can be repealed,

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:
