Financial Sanctions: Al-Qaida
This news release is issued in respect of the restrictive measures directed against certain persons and entities associated with the Al-Qaida network.
The European Commission has amended Annex I to Council Regulation (EC) No 881/2002 ("the 2002 Regulation") with effect from 12 May 2012. Annex I of the 2002 Regulation lists the persons, groups and entities covered by the freezing of funds and economic resources under that Regulation. The amendments reflects the decisions made on 27 April and 2 May 2012 by the United Nations Sanctions Committee established pursuant to resolution 1267 (1999) to remove three individuals from the UN Al-Qaida list.
The individuals removed from Annex I are therefore no longer subject to the asset freeze imposed by the 2002 Regulation.
