The EU has added The Army Of Emigrants And Supporters to its Al Qaida sanctions list and amended the existing entries for 7 people and 4 entities, in order to implement 4 recent decisions made by the Al Qaida Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council. The EU implementation of these sanctions imposes an EU-wide asset freeze and prohibition on supplying listed people with technical advice, assistance, or training related to military activities. Among those whose listings have been amended is Ayman al-Zawahiri, whose entry now reflects the death of Osama bin Laden and his rise to become leader of Al-Qaida.
The changes are made by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/1390 amending Council Regulation (EC) 881/2002. The EU’s notice to The Army of Emigrants And Supporters is here and HM Treasury’s notices are here and here.
