The ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaida organisations
Council Regulation (EU) 881/2002 (“the Regulation”) imposing financial sanctions against Al-Qaida has been amended by Council Regulation 2016/363 (“the Amending Regulation”).
On 15 March 2016 the Amending Regulation was published in the Official Journal of the European Union by the European Commission. The Amending Regulation took effect on 16 March.
The title of the regime has been amended, and will now be referred to as “the ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaida organisations”. The consolidated list reflects this change. Persons listed on the consolidated list under the former regime name ‘Al-Qaida’ continue to be subject to an asset freeze.
The Amending Regulation also amended several articles of the Regulation. Please see the Amending Regulation for details.
