July 13, 2011 - EU declaration on the alignment of certain third (candidate) countries concerning restrictive measures in view of the situation in Libya EU Press Release


June 27, 2011 - The European Union has taken note of the decision of the International Criminal Court's Pre-Trial Chamber I on 27 June to issue an arrest warrant against Muammar Abu Minya Gaddafi, Saif Al Islam Gaddafi and Abdullah Al Sanousi in connection with alleged crimes against humanity in Libya. The European Union fully supports the International Criminal Court, which plays a key role in the promotion of international justice.

The International Criminal Court is an essential mean of promoting respect for international humanitarian law and human rights, thus contributing to security, justice and the rule of law as well as contributing to the preservation of peace and the strengthening of international security. The EU recalls the fundamental principle contained in the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court that the most serious crimes of concern to the international community as a whole must not go unpunished. Putting an end to impunity for the perpetrators of theses crimes contributes to the prevention of such crimes.

The EU calls for full co-operation with the International Criminal Court and underscores that the International Criminal Court’s investigation in Libya is an independent judicial process which must be fully respected. EU Press Release

COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION - Brussels, 28 February 2011 (7081/11) - PRESSE 41

Libya: EU imposes arms embargo and targeted sanctions EU Arms Sanctions


The Council of the European Union adopted today a decision implementing the UN Security Council Resolution on Libya of 26 February (UNSCR 1970/2011) and imposing additional restrictive measures against those responsible for the violent crackdown on the civilian population.


In line with Saturday's decision by the UNSC, the Council banned the supply to Libya of arms, ammunition and related material. In addition to the UN measures, the Council also prohibited trade with Libya in equipment which might be used for internal repression.

The Council enacted the following UN measures:


The Council also adopted as autonomous measures a visa ban on an additional 10 individuals and an asset freeze on a further 20 individuals responsible for the violent crackdown on the civilian population.

The decision was adopted without discussion at today's meeting of the Transport, Telecoms and Energy Council.


On 23 February, the European Union expressed its grave concern about the situation unfolding in Libya. It strongly condemned the violence and use of force against civilians and deplored the repression against peaceful demonstrators which has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of civilians. It called for an immediate end to the use of force and for steps to address the legitimate demands of the population, including through national dialogue.

The decision taken today will be kept under review. It will be published in the Official Journal in the coming days.

UK Financial Sanctions Notice & UN Press Release


September 29, 2011 - UK Implementing Council Regulation (EU) No 965/2011 - Central Bank of Libya, Libyan Arab Foreign Bank, Libyan Investment Authority and Libyan Africa Investment Portfolio This Notice is issued in respect of the asset freezing measures directed against certain persons, entities and bodies in view of the situation in Libya. This Notice draws attention to Council Regulation (EU) No 965/2011, covers the asset freezing provisions only of the Regulation and should be read alongside the Regulation.

Modified asset freezing provisions - The Regulation modifies the asset freeze in respect of the following four entities:

So that only funds, other financial assets and economic resources belonging to, owned, held or controlled, directly or indirectly by those entities as of 16 September 2011 that were held outside Libya on that date shall remain frozen. In addition, the Regulation removes the prohibition on making funds or economic resources available, directly or indirectly, to or for the benefit of the four entities.

How the modified asset freeze works

UK-EU 965/2011


September 23, 2011 - Further the EU has today also published Council Decision 2011/625/CFSP which takes account of changes made by the UN to its restrictive measures in respect of Libya by Security Council Resolution 2009 (2011), in particular those relating to the Central Bank of Libya, Libyan (Arab) Foreign Bank, Libyan Investment Authority and the Libyan Africa Investment Portfolio. A copy of the Decision can be obtained via the EU Website

Please note that the changes covered in Resolution 2009 (2011) and the Decision do not take legal effect in the UK and other EU Member States until an EU Regulation has been adopted to bring them into effect. The EU is working on the new Regulation as a matter of priority and the Treasury will provide further information when the new EU Regulation has been adopted. Existing asset freezes relating to the four entities should therefore be maintained until further notice.

September 19, 2011 - Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 925/2011 (September 17, 2011) on Libya - This notification is issued in respect of the asset-freezing measures directed by the Council of the European Union against certain persons in view of the situation in Libya, including reconfirmation of certain UN sanctions.

UK HM Treasury UK-EU 925/2011


17 September 2011 - Financial Sanctions: Libya - United Nations Security Council Resolution 2009 (2011) of 16 September 2011

This memo draws your attention to action taken by the United Nations in relation to Libya.

  1. On Friday 16 September 2011, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 2009 (2011) on Libya which contains measures in relation to the asset freeze. Resolution 2009 (2011) signals the commitment of the international community to support the Libyan authorities in establishing a free Libya.
  2. In Resolution 2009 (2011), the Security Council - Recalls “its determination to ensure that assets frozen pursuant to resolutions 1970 (2011) and 1973 (2011) shall as soon as possible be made available to and for the benefit of the people of Libya, welcoming steps taken by the Committee established pursuant to resolution 1970 (2011) and Member States in this regard, and underscoring the importance of making these assets available in a transparent and responsible manner in conformity with the needs and wishes of the Libyan people”.
  3. Resolution 2009 (2011) sets the framework for making frozen assets available for the Libyan people in a transparent and responsible manner and the UK is now working with EU partners to implement the UN Resolution through an EU Regulation.
  4. A copy of the Security Council release SC/10389 of 16 September 2011 on Resolution 2009 (2011) is available from the UN website
  5. The UN Resolution has the following effects –
    1. It maintains the asset freezing measures imposed against Colonel Qadhafi and five of his family members, as designated under resolution 1970 (2011).
    2. It decides that the Libyan National Oil Corporation and Zuietina Oil Company shall no longer be subject to the UN asset freezing measures.
    3. It modifies the asset freeze on the Central Bank of Libya, the Libyan Arab Foreign Bank, the Libyan Investment Authority and the Libyan Africa Investment Portfolio, and entities they own or control. Funds, other financial assets and economic resources of those entities frozen as of 16 September 2011 remain frozen. These entities are otherwise no longer subject to the prohibitions, so that it will be permitted to conduct new transactions with them and ‘new’ funds of those entities generated after the date of the Resolution are not subject to the asset freeze.
    4. It creates a new provision under which Member States may issue licences of exemption for the assets that were frozen as of 16 September 2011. This allows licensing for:
      1. humanitarian needs;
      2. fuel, electricity and water for strictly civilian uses;
      3. resuming Libyan production and sale of hydrocarbons;
      4. establishing, operating, or strengthening institutions of civilian government and civilian public infrastructure; or
      5. facilitating the resumption of banking sector operations, including to support or facilitate international trade with Libya.
    5. It directs the UN Sanctions Committee, in consultation with the Libyan authorities, to review continuously the remaining measures imposed by resolutions 1970 (2011) and 1973 (2011) with respect to the Central Bank of Libya, the Libyan Arab Foreign Bank, the Libyan Investment Authority and the Libyan Africa Investment Portfolio, and decides that the Committee shall, in consultation with the Libyan authorities, lift the designation of these entities as soon as practical to ensure the assets are made available to and for the benefit of the people of Libya.
  6. The European Union has implemented UN financial sanctions against Libya through the directly applicable EU Regulation 204/2011. The changes set out in Resolution 2009 (2011) will therefore not take legal effect in the UK and in other EU Member States until the EU Regulation has been amended accordingly. The EU will be bringing the EU Regulation into line with Resolution 2009 (2011) as a matter of priority and the Treasury will provide further information when the new EU Regulation has been adopted. Existing asset freezes should therefore be maintained until further notice.

The original version referred to the Council of the European Union having adopted Council Decision 2011/332/CFSP of 7 June 2011.

June 08, 2011 - The Council of the European Union agreed Council Decision 2011/332/CFSP on 7 June 2011. The Decision will affect trade with Libya as it sets out the Council’s intention to designate six port authorities in Libya for an asset freeze. The asset freeze will take effect on the publication of an implementing Regulation. This is expected shortly. The Treasury will publish a notification and update this guidance when the asset freeze of the port authorities takes effect. The port authorities which will be designated for an asset freeze are: <sort> Tripoli Al Khoms Brega Ras Lanuf Zawia or Zawiyah Zuwara or Zuara </sort> The Treasury will be able to authorise exemptions from the asset freeze of the port authorities for the execution of prior contracts until 15 July 2011. This will enable payments to the port authorities which are necessary in order to fulfil an existing contract. An existing contract is one that was concluded before the date of the entry into force of the implementing Regulation, which is expected shortly. The existing contract does not have to be with the port itself, but the port will be the means of delivery for the contract. The prior contracts exemption does not apply to contracts relating to oil, gas and refined products. UK-EU 2011/332/CSFP

Norway

March 11, 2011 - Today the Government adopted regulations imposing targeted sanctions on the Libyan regime, taking UN Security Council resolution 1970 (2011) as its basis.

“The international community hopes the sanctions will help to stop the violence and bring the perpetrators to justice,” said Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre. The resolution was adopted in response to reports of gross and systematic human rights violations in Libya, including arbitrary killings and arrests, that may amount to crimes against humanity. The situation in Libya is also regarded as a threat to international peace and security.

The regulations provide for a comprehensive arms embargo against Libya as well as measures to freeze the assets of individuals with close ties to the regime and any entities controlled by them, directly or indirectly. For example, the regulations require Norwegian banks to freeze all assets controlled by the Libyan regime and report such assets to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Norway Sanctions Press Release

October 26, 2011 - Lockerung der Sanktionen gegenüber Libyen - Easing of sanctions against Libya

Bern, 26.10.2011 - Der Bundesrat hat am 26. Oktober 2011 eine Reihe von Erleichterungen bei den Sanktionen gegenüber Libyen beschlossen. Die Überweisung von Geldern an bestimmte libysche Staatsunternehmen ist künftig wieder möglich. Zudem hebt die Schweiz die Luftverkehrsbeschränkungen für libysche Flugzeuge auf. Damit setzt der Bundesrat Resolution 2009 des UNO-Sicherheitsrates vom 16. September 2011 um. Die neuen Bestimmungen treten am 27. Oktober 2011 in Kraft.

Angesichts der Umwälzungen in Libyen hatte der UNO-Sicherheitsrat am 16. September 2011 Resolution 2009 (2011) verabschiedet. Mit dieser Resolution wurde eine Unterstützungsmission der Vereinten Nationen in Libyen (UNSMIL) geschaffen und die Sanktionen in verschiedenen Bereichen gelockert.

Neu dürfen den von der UNO sanktionierten libyschen Staatsunternehmen wieder Gelder und andere Vermögenswerte zur Verfügung gestellt werden. Ihre per 16. September 2011 eingefrorenen Gelder bleiben indessen vorläufig blockiert. Diese Änderung betrifft die Central Bank of Libya, die Libyan Investment Authority, die Libyan Foreign Bank und das Libyan Africa Investment Portfolio.

Mit Resolution 2009 hatte der UNO-Sicherheitsrat auch die National Oil Corporation und die Zueitina Oil Company von der Liste der sanktionierten libyschen Unternehmen gestrichen. Die Schweiz hob die Sanktionen gegenüber diesen beiden Unternehmen bereits am 21. September 2011 auf. Durch diese Massnahme wurden 385 Mio. Franken an blockierten libyschen Vermögenswerten freigegeben. Gegenwärtig sind in der Schweiz noch rund 265 Mio. Franken blockiert. Diese Vermögenswerte entfallen zu rund 90 Prozent auf libysche Staatsunternehmen.

Schliesslich wurden in Übereinstimmung mit Resolution 2009 auch die Luftverkehrs-beschränkungen für libysche Flugzeuge aufgehoben. Seit dem 31. März war der schweizerische Luftraum für libysche Flugzeuge gesperrt.

Weitere Sanktionsmassnahmen gegenüber Libyen - Bern, 30.03.2011 - Der Bundesrat hat am 30. März 2011 eine neue Verordnung über Massnahmen gegenüber Libyen erlassen. Damit setzt die Schweiz die Sanktionsbeschlüsse des UNO-Sicherheitsrates sowie die darüber hinausgehenden Massnahmen der Europäischen Union um. Die Verordnung tritt am 31. März 2011 in Kraft und löst die am 21. Februar 2011 erlassene Verordnung über Massnahmen gegen gewisse Personen aus Libyen ab. Swiss Sanctions (Press Release) - Swiss Sanctions (March 11, 2011) - Swiss Sanctions (March 30, 2011)


Bern, 04.03.2011 Der Bundesrat hat heute eine Aussprache zur Umsetzung der vom UNO-Sicherheitsrat beschlossenen Sanktionen gegenüber Libyen geführt. Dabei hat er seine Verordnung vom 21. Februar 2011 über Massnahmen gegen gewisse Personen aus Libyen angepasst. Der UNO-Sicherheitsrat beschloss am 26. Februar 2011 einstimmig, die mutmasslich für die Angriffe auf die libysche Zivilbevölkerung Verantwortlichen an den Internationalen Strafgerichtshof zu überweisen sowie Sanktionsmassnahmen gegenüber Libyen zu verhängen. Dabei handelt es um ein Rüstungsgüterembargo, ein Ein- und Durchreiseverbot für 16 Personen sowie Finanzsanktionen gegenüber 6 natürlichen Personen (einschliesslich Muammar Gaddafi).

Mit seiner Verordnung vom 21. Februar 2011 hat der Bundesrat bereits die Vermögenswerte von 29 natürlichen Personen aus Libyen mit einer Sperre belegt. Darunter befinden sich auch alle von der UNO gelisteten Personen. Das vom UNO-Sicherheitsrat beschlossene Rüstungsgüterembargo sowie die Reisesanktionen können pragmatisch und mittels bereits bestehender Rechtsgrundlagen umgesetzt werden. Entsprechende Massnahmen zur Umsetzung hat der Bundesrat heute beschlossen. Somit besteht für die Schweiz im Moment keine Dringlichkeit, eine spezielle Embargo-Verordnung gegenüber Libyen zu erlassen. Die Verwaltung bereitet jedoch eine solche Verordnung vor, die zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt dem Bundesrat zur Beschlussfassung unterbreitet werden soll.

Die Schweiz will jegliche finanzielle Unterstützung von Muammar Gaddafi und seines Umfelds verhindern. Deshalb hat der Bundesrat seine Verordnung vom 21. Februar 2011 über Massnahmen gegenüber gewissen Personen aus Libyen mit einem zusätzlichen Verbot ergänzt. Demnach ist es untersagt, den im Anhang der Verordnung genannten natürlichen Personen Gelder zu überweisen oder Gelder und wirtschaftliche Ressourcen sonstwie direkt oder indirekt zur Verfügung zu stellen.

Die vom UNO-Sicherheitsrat beschlossenen Finanzsanktionen richten sich gegen die sechs gelisteten natürlichen Personen. Libysche Staatsunternehmen oder vom Staat direkt oder indirekt kontrollierte Gesellschaften sind, insoweit sie vom zuständigen UN-Sanktionskomitee nicht explizit den Sanktionen unterworfen werden, von diesen Massnahmen nicht betroffen.

New Zealand

Article 41 of the United Nations Charter authorises the Security Council to take enforcement measures not involving the use of force in order to give effect to its decisions. These measures often take the form of sanctions. UN Security Council sanctions are binding on all UN member States, including New Zealand, and are implemented in New Zealand law by regulations made under the United Nations Act 1946. All persons and entities in New Zealand, and in many cases New Zealand citizens and companies overseas, must comply with regulations implementing Security Council sanctions. The range of sanctions imposed by the Security Council has included comprehensive economic and trade sanctions as well as more targeted measures such as arms embargoes, travel bans, and financial restrictions. Financial restrictions, otherwise known as an “assets freeze” are one of the most commonly used sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council. New Zealand Sanctions

October 18, 2012 - Treasury Targets Business Associate of Muammar Qadhafi's Son - Action Targets Dalene Sanders for Providing Support and Services to Saadi Qadhafi

The U.S. Department of the Treasury today designated Dalene Sanders for providing support and services to Saadi Qadhafi, son of former Libyan leader Muammar Qadhafi. Saadi Qadhafi is currently believed to be in Niger and he was designated pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13566 on March 11, 2011. The United Nations also imposed sanctions on Saadi Qadhafi on March 17, 2011 in United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973. Dalene Sanders is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13566 because she has provided financial and material support to, as well as services in support of, Saadi Qadhafi. Additionally, Dalene Sanders is being designated for acting or purporting to act for or on behalf of Saadi Qadhafi.

“Today’s designation of a key, ongoing supporter of Saadi Qadhafi reflects the United States government’s steadfast commitment to a free and democratic Libya. We are determined to oppose all those who seek to foster violence, fear, or instability in Libya, and we will continue to support efforts to prevent funds belonging to the Libyan people from being misused,” said Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David S. Cohen.

Saadi Qadhafi has called for an uprising against the democratically-elected Libyan government and has threatened to return to Libya to carry on his father’s brutal legacy. Additionally, he has claimed to be in contact with a number of people who are willing to help him with his revolt. Saadi Qadhafi’s ongoing activities and the potential misuse of resources at his disposal pose a direct threat to Libya’s democratic transition.

Dalene Sanders has been working to move money out of bank accounts held in Uganda on instruction from Saadi Qadhafi. In February 2012, Dalene Sanders also met with Ugandan officials to discuss asylum in Uganda for Saadi Qadhafi.

On March 1, 2011, President Obama declared a national emergency with respect to Libya in E.O. 13566. This authority targets Muammar Qadhafi, his government, his family, and his close associates for being involved in the commission of human rights abuses related to political repression in Libya.

The U.S. government continues to work to support Libya’s security and democratic transition. In this regard, today’s action seeks to prevent Libyan state assets from being misappropriated by Qadhafi’s family members or close associates to threaten the democratically-elected government. As a result of today’s designation, U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in transactions with Dalene Sanders and any assets she may have under U.S. jurisdiction are frozen. Department of the Treasury Press Release


February 14, 2012 - Libya Designation - The following individual has been added to OFAC's SDN list:


Treasury Designates Humayd ‘Abd-Al-Salam, a Key Facilitator for Saadi Qadhafi - 2/14/2012 ​ WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today designated Humayd ‘Abd-al-Salam under Executive Order 13566 for acting or purporting to act for or on behalf of Saadi Qadhafi, a son of former Libyan leader Muammar Qadhafi, and because he has materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, logistical, or technical support for, or goods or services in support of Saadi Qadhafi. OFAC designated Saadi Qadhafi pursuant to Executive Order 13566 on March 11, 2011. The United Nations also imposed sanctions on Saadi Qadhafi on March 17, 2011 in United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973.

In late September 2011, during the popular revolt seeking to overthrow the Qadhafi regime, and after the imposition of U.S. and United Nations sanctions against Muammar Qadhafi and his sons, Saadi and Mutassim, Humayd ‘Abd-al-Salam reportedly coordinated a meeting for Saadi Qadhafi. In early October 2011, Humayd ‘Abd-al-Salam reportedly coordinated the delivery of vehicles and drivers to Saadi Qadhafi and Mutassim Qadhafi. Additionally, in early October 2011, Humayd was instructed by the late Mutassim Qadhafi to arrange payment for a shipment of military equipment, including sniper rifles and night vision devices.

“Today’s designation targets a key supporter of Saadi Qadhafi, who remains determined to carry on his father’s legacy, to reverse Libya’s democratic transition through violence, and to foster instability in the region,” said Adam J. Szubin, Director of OFAC. “The United States of America is determined to assist the Libyan people as they work to develop a democratic, peaceful, and prosperous society, and will expose those who are trying to derail Libya’s transition.”

As a result of today’s action, U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in transactions with Humayd ‘Abd-al-Salam and any assets he may have subject to U.S. jurisdiction are frozen.

Part 570 - General License No 7


July 01, 2011 - Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”) issued the new Libyan Sanctions Regulations, 31 CFR part 570, to implement Executive Order 13566 of February 25, 2011, “Blocking Property and Prohibiting Certain Transactions Related to Libya.” These regulations were published as a final rule at 76 FR 38562 (July 1, 2011). OFAC published the regulations in abbreviated form at this time but intends to supplement this part 570 with a more comprehensive set of regulations, which may include additional interpretive and definitional guidance and additional general licenses and statements of licensing policy. Effective July 1, the regulations replace and supersede General License Nos. 2 and 3, which have been available on, and are now being removed from, OFAC’s Web site. General License Nos. 1B, 4, and 5, as well as certain statements of licensing policy, are not being incorporated into the regulations at this time and remain available on OFAC’s Web site.


June 30, 2011 - Updated OFAC Sanctions 31 CFR Chapter V The Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is amending 31 CFR chapter V to replace the list of persons (which includes individuals and entities) with whom transactions and dealings are prohibited by the various economic sanctions programs administered by OFAC that appears at Appendix A to 31 CFR chapter V with information on how to obtain up-to-date lists of such persons on OFAC’s Web site or by other means.

OFAC also is removing Appendix B to 31 CFR chapter V, which includes the names of certain blocked vessels. In addition, OFAC is amending its regulations for a number of the sanctions programs it administers to revise references to Appendix A and to remove references to Appendix B.

Finally, OFAC is amending the Iranian Transactions Regulations, by republishing in alphabetical order the entire list of persons identified in Appendix A to 31 CFR Part 560, to reflect changes to the list since that appendix was last published. Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 126 / Thursday, June 30, 2011 / Rules and Regulations (For Libya it was July 01, 2011 - see above)

570 - LIBYA – SDN List + Additional information pertaining to the SDN List can be found in Appendix A to this chapter. See § 570.406 concerning entities that may not be listed on the SDN List but whose property and interests in property are nevertheless blocked pursuant to this section. Executive Order 13566 also blocks the property and interests in property of the Government of Libya. See § 570.304 of this part for the definition of the term Government of Libya. The property and interests in property of persons falling within the definition of the term Government of Libya are blocked pursuant to this section regardless of whether the names of such persons are published in the Federal Register or incorporated into the SDN List.

§ 570.406 Entities owned by a person whose property and interests in property are blocked. A person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to § 570.201 has an interest in all property and interests in property of an entity in which it owns, directly or indirectly, a 50 percent or greater interest. The property and interests in property of such an entity, therefore, are blocked, and such an entity is a person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to § 570.201, regardless of whether the entity itself is listed in the Annex or designated pursuant to Executive Order 13566. Note to § 570.406: This section, which deals with the consequences of ownership of entities, in no way limits section 570.304’s definition of the term Government of Libya.


June 21, 2011 - OFAC today identified nine companies owned by the Government of Libya as subject to sanctions pursuant to E.O. 13566. E.O. 13566 blocks all property and interests in property within U.S. jurisdiction of the Government of Libya and its agencies, instrumentalities and controlled entities, whether specifically identified by OFAC or not. U.S. persons are prohibited from engaging in business with any Government of Libya-owned or -controlled entity absent authorization. Today’s identifications are intended to aid U.S. persons and others in meeting their obligations under E.O. 13566. OFAC Designation & Press Release

Executive Order 13566

US Foreign Terrorist Organizations

September 28, 2012 - Delisting of the Mujahedin-e Khalq - The Secretary of State has decided, consistent with the law, to revoke the designation of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK) and its aliases as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) under the Immigration and Nationality Act and to delist the MEK as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist under Executive Order 13224. These actions are effective today. Property and interests in property in the United States or within the possession or control of U.S. persons will no longer be blocked, and U.S. entities may engage in transactions with the MEK without obtaining a license. These actions will be published in the Federal Register.

With today’s actions, the Department does not overlook or forget the MEK’s past acts of terrorism, including its involvement in the killing of U.S. citizens in Iran in the 1970s and an attack on U.S. soil in 1992. The Department also has serious concerns about the MEK as an organization, particularly with regard to allegations of abuse committed against its own members.

The Secretary’s decision today took into account the MEK’s public renunciation of violence, the absence of confirmed acts of terrorism by the MEK for more than a decade, and their cooperation in the peaceful closure of Camp Ashraf, their historic paramilitary base.

The United States has consistently maintained a humanitarian interest in seeking the safe, secure, and humane resolution of the situation at Camp Ashraf, as well as in supporting the United Nations-led efforts to relocate eligible former Ashraf residents outside of Iraq.

Augustus 30, 2012 - Anti-Terrorism Designations (SDGT) - US designates eight Lashkar-e-Taiba leaders as terrorists, places sanctions

LET was designated by the Department of State as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) and under E.O. 13224 as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist entity in December 2001. LET was added to the UN 1267/1989 Committee's Consolidated List – its list of sanctioned terrorists – in May 2005.

Despite being banned by the Government of Pakistan in January 2002, LET continues to operate in Pakistan and throughout the region and engage in or support terrorist activities worldwide. LET has conducted numerous terrorist acts against Pakistani, Indian, Afghan, and U.S. interests and is responsible for the November 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed more than 160 people, including six Americans, and the July 2006 Mumbai train bombings that killed more than 180 people.

All of the individuals designated today pursuant to E.O. 13224 were designated for acting on behalf of or providing support either to LET itself or to previously designated members of LET. Today’s action prohibits U.S. persons from engaging in any transactions with these individuals and freezes any assets the designees have under U.S. jurisdiction.

The following individuals have been added to OFAC's SDN List:

May 24, 2012 - Terrorist Designations of the Abdallah Azzam Brigades

The Department of State designated the Abdallah Azzam Brigades (AAB) as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) under Section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act and as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist under section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224. The Abdallah Azzam Brigades (AAB), a militant organization based in both Lebanon and the Arabian Peninsula, was formed in 2009. AAB is led by Saleh al-Qar’awi, who was designated by the Department of State under E.O. 13224. The Department of State also designated AAB’s bomb maker, Abu Jabal, under E.O. 13224 on November 22, 2011.

AAB carried out a July 2010 attack on the Japanese-owned oil tanker M/V M.Star in the Strait of Hormuz. According to a statement released online, AAB claimed that the attack was carried out by its Arabian Peninsula Branch, which calls itself the Yusuf al-’Uyayri Battalions of the Abdullah Azzam Brigades. AAB has repeatedly articulated its intent to carry out attacks against Western interests in the Middle East. In 2010, for instance, the group expressed an interest in kidnapping U.S. and British tourists in the Arabian Peninsula.

In addition, AAB is responsible for numerous indiscriminate rocket attacks on Israeli civilians. These attacks, which have been launched from within Lebanon by the Ziyad al-Jarrah Battalions of the Abdallah Azzam Brigades, have targeted population centers in northern Israel.

The consequences of these designations include a prohibition against knowingly providing material support or resources to, or engaging in transactions with, the Abdallah Azzam Brigades, and the freezing of all property and interest in property of the organization that are in the United States, or come within the United States, or the control of U.S. persons. The Department of State took these actions in consultation with the Departments of Justice and Treasury.

US Department of State Press Release


June 18, 2011 - Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO) are foreign organizations that are designated by the Secretary of State in accordance with section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), as amended. FTO designations play a critical role in our fight against terrorism and are an effective means of curtailing support for terrorist activities and pressuring groups to get out of the terrorism business.
