ANNULMENT OF EU LIBYA SANCTIONS ON COLONEL GADDAFI’S COUSIN TAKES EFFECT

The EU’s asset freeze on Mr Qadhaf Al-Dam has now been annulled.  As we previously reported (see previous blog), on 24 September 2014 the General Court of the European Union, in its judgement in case T-348/13, annulled those parts of various Council Decisions and Regulations which had added him to the list of people subject to EU restrictive measures in view of the situation in Libya.

The judgment was not appealed to the ECJ within two months and has now come into effect, meaning that Mr Qadaf Al-Dam is no longer subject to an asset freeze.  A notice published by HM Treasury in the UK confirming the position is here.
