Volume 458: debated on Thursday 29 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs which Zimbabwean individuals have been placed on the EU's sanctions list; which Zimbabwean institution each relevant individual represents; what the estimated value is of each individual's assets frozen under EU sanctions; and if she will make a statement.

There are currently 125 Zimbabweans named on the EU's assets freeze and travel ban list. A copy of the list will be placed in the Library of the House. Another five will be added as a result of a recent ministerial reshuffle. All members of President Mugabe's Cabinet and ZANU-PF's Politburo are included, together with governors, heads of the security forces, election officials and others associated with abuses. In the United Kingdom, 42 accounts containing a total of £172,000 are currently frozen.
