European Union warns DRC of more sanctions


The European Union has warned the Democratic Republic of Congo that it faces more sanctions if political and military leaders block a deal with the opposition on the country’s future.

The EU says asset freeze and travel ban sanctions would target those responsible for grave human rights violations and inciting violence.

It will also affect those obstructing a peaceful resolution of the crisis which respects the aspirations of the Congolese people to elect their representatives.

This latest threat of sanctions comes amid growing frustration with President Joseph Kabila’s refusal to stand aside at the end of his term late last year.
