EU starts preparations to impose sanctions against Niger's rebels


The EU list will have a section on "undermining democracy," according to Reuters.

The European Union (EU) has begun setting the foundation for the imposition of the initial penalties against the military that carried out the coup d'├ętat in Niger, reports Reuters.

Unnamed European officials claim that the community has already started debating the standards for the implementation of punitive measures. In particular, there will be a section on "undermining democracy" on the list.

According to the EU ambassador, "the next step will be sanctions against individual members of the junta" who are thought to be accountable for overturning the nation's constitutional government.

Local government representatives at the federal level discussed the problem On August 9. As mentioned, the criteria might be decided relatively soon.
