The EU has updated its counterterrorism sanctions against Al-Qaida to reflect changes made by the United Nations Security Council. They add Maulana Fazlullah, commander of Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan (which claimed responsibility for the school shootings in Pakistan on 16 December 2014), who is a Specially Designated Global Terrorist under US sanctions.
Abd Al-Rahman Muhammad Jaffar Ali has been removed, having served a sentence for financing terrorism and membership of a terrorist organisation. Listed people are subject to an EU-wide asset freeze.
A list of EU counterterrorism sanctions is in the “sanctions in force” section of this blog.
