October 21, 2016: Ta-ta, TAFA

On Friday, Her Majesty’s Treasury (HMT) revoked the following Final Designation made under the Terorrist Asset-Freezing etc. Act 2010 (TAFA):

FUERZAS ARMADAS REVOLUCIONARIAS DE COLOMBIA

a.k.a: (1) FARC
(2) Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia

Other Information: UK listing only. Group ID: 7418. 

Nice to see proactive revocations, rather than just running out the clock until the designation expires automatically at the end of a year. Of course, this is in reaction to the peace deal that was agreed to in negotiations with the Colombian government, despite it being rejected by the Colombian people in a referendum.
