The European Union adopted Council Regulation (EC) No 131/2004 of 26 January 2004 which implemented measures in the EU prohibiting the supply of technical, financial and other assistance related to military activities, with exemptions, directly or indirectly to any person, entity or body in, or for use in Sudan.
By the adoption of UNSCR 1591 (2005) on 29 March 2005, the United Nations imposed travel restrictions, with exemptions, and an assets freeze on designated individuals. A Committee was established to designate targets of the travel restrictions and assets freeze. Designated targets were those deemed by the Committee to be impeding the peace process, constituting a threat to stability in Darfur and the region, committing human rights violations and violating measures set out in previous resolutions (primarily related to an arms embargo).
