Sanctions and Restrictive Measures
The restrictive measures are safety measures whose purpose is to preserve peace and to enhance international security, that is, to solve critical situations without the use of force by making pressure on countries, organizations or entities against whom such measures have been lifted.
The restrictive measures imposed by the corresponding UN Security Council resolutions are enforced due to the commitments undertaken by the UN Charter, as an international agreement which is, further to Article 140 of the Constitution of the Republic of Croatia, considered part of the internal legal order of the Republic of Croatia with the legal force above the law.
The Republic of Croatia implements, enforces or removes international restrictive measures against countries, international organizations, territorial entities, movements or physical or legal persons according to the Act on International Restrictive Measures (Official Gazette 139/08).
