The European Union (EU) is set to review sanctions against Zimbabwe.
Last year the EU extended its sanctions on Zimbabwe until 20 February 2019. The EU extended sanctions against Zimbabwe so that the situation in the country given President Emmerson Mnangagwa ascension to power through a military intervention in November 2017 could become clearer.
EU travel restrictions and asset freezes continue to be imposed on 7 people (Robert Mugabe, Grace Mugabe, Happyton Bonyongwe, Augustine Chihuri, Constantine Chiwenga, Perence Shiri and Phillip Sibando) and 1 entity (Zimbabwe Defence Industries). However, those sanctions are currently suspended, except in relation to Robert Mugabe, Grace Mugabe and Zimbabwe Defence Industries.
