EU implements new UN terrorism listings

The EU has added 11 people and 1 entity to its Al-Qaida / ISIL terrorism sanctions listings to implement new UN designations from 29 February 2016. The changes are made by Commission Implementing Regulation 2016/307 implementing Council Regulation 881/2002.

In December, the UN passed a resolution imposing sanctions on ISIL and extended the mandate of the office of Ombudsperson to the re-named ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee for a further 24 months (see previous blog).
