Zimbabwe: Sanctions

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 12 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what plans the Government have to extend economic sanctions against Zimbabwe. (208454)

We have no economic sanctions against Zimbabwe nor are any planned at this stage. The EU targeted measures impose a visa ban and asset freeze on President Mugabe and 130 other named Zimbabweans. There is also an EU embargo on selling arms to Zimbabwe. These measures do not hurt ordinary Zimbabweans. The county's economic meltdown is entirely the result of President Mugabe's misguided policies.
