EU adds Trinidadian man to sanctions on ISIL

The EU has added Trinidadian Shane Dominic Crawford to its sanctions on ISIL & AL-Qaida, in order to implement his UN listing. The UN listed Mr Crawford earlier this month for serving as an English language propagandist for ISIL in print and video media. He is believed to be in Syria, where it is thought he also serves as a sniper. He is wanted in Trinidad and Tobago for firearm related offences and larceny, and was once arrested on suspicion of involvement in an alleged plot to assassinate the country’s prime minister and several members of its government.

See Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/1500 amending Council Regulation (EU) 881/2002. The EU’s notice to him is here.
