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 17 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 reflect the decisions made on 4 May and 8 May 2012 by the United Nations Sanctions Committee established pursuant to resolution 1267 (1999) to remove two 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.
