United Nations Sanctions (Somalia) Regulation 2019 (Amendment) Regulation 2024 gazetted
     The Government today (June 14) gazetted the United Nations Sanctions (Somalia) Regulation 2019 (Amendment) Regulation 2024, which came into operation today.
     "The Amendment Regulation amends the United Nations Sanctions (Somalia) Regulation 2019 to give effect to certain decisions on sanctions in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolutions 2713 and 2714 in respect of Somalia," a Government spokesman said.
     The amendments mainly relate to prohibition against the supply, sale, transfer or carriage of weapons, ammunition or military equipment to Somalia or to certain persons; prohibition against the provision of technical assistance or training or financial or other assistance to certain persons; and certain exemption arrangements in respect of arms embargo, improvised explosive devices (IED) components ban and provision of IED technology.
     The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government has all along been implementing fully the sanctions imposed by the UNSC. The Amendment Regulation aims to give effect to the instructions by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for fulfilling the international obligations of the People's Republic of China as a Member State of the United Nations.
