EU sanctions 17 individuals linked to North Korean illicit activities

All persons previously profiled by UN Panel of Experts, not yet under Security Council restrictions

The European Union sanctioned 17 individuals on Monday, subjecting them to asset freezes and travel bans for activities related to prohibited North Korean activity, a notice on the EU’s Official Journal showed.

The individuals, none of which are currently subjected to UN Security Council (UNSC) designations, all appear to be DPRK citizens.
