    EU slaps fresh sanctions on Myanmar government

    The EU on ทดลองเล่นสล็อตฟรีทุกค่าย added eight officials from Myanmar’s military and three firms linked to the military to its sanctions blacklist over the country’s February coup and bloody repression of protests.

    Those targeted with asset freezes and visa bans included the interior, security, finance, natural resources and transport ministers, according to listings published in the EU’s official journal.

    The 27-nation bloc put the state-run gem and timber enterprises on the list as they look to cut off key revenues to the military government.

    It also added the Myanmar War Veterans Organisation, which acts as a reserve force for the military, to the blacklist.

    The latest additions take the number of individuals and entities sanctioned by the EU to 35 since the bloc’s first round of punitive measures agreed in March.

    The US and Britain have also targeted key officials and enterprises in the country, but so far the military government has shrugged off Western pressure.

    London on Monday also announced sanctions on the same companies as well as the military government’s ruling body the State Administration Council.

    The Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office said the move to curb trade in the two high-value commodities would deprive the generals of “millions in revenue”.
