The European Union Council enacted a legislative framework that permits ” imposing sanctions upon individuals and entities responsible for actions that threaten the peace, stability, and security of Niger”.

With these new stringent measures, the EU may impose travel bans and freeze the assets of specific businesses and individuals.
