July 12, 2017: EU, HMT update 1 terror listing

Last Wednesday, Her Majesty’s Treasury (HMT) implemented Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2017/1251 by amending the following entity’s listing under the ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaida counter terrorism sanctions:

 

JAMAAT-UL-AHRAR (JUA)
a.k.a: (1) Ahrar-ul-Hind (2) Jamaat-e-Ahrar (3) Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan Jamaat ul Ahrar Address: (1) Lalpura, Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan (since June 2015). (2) Mohmand Agency, Pakistan (as at August 2014). Other Information: UN and EU listing. UN ref QDe.152. Splinter group of the Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan (QDe.132). Associated with Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, listed as Al-Qaida in Iraq (QDe.115). Formed in Aug. 2014 in Mohmand Agency, Pakistan. Operates from Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan and Pakistan-Afghanistan border region. Listed on: 07/07/2017 Last Updated: 07/07/2017 12/07/2017 Group ID: 13491. 

The Notice also references when changes were implemented under the auspices of the United Nations and European Union Financial Sanctions (Linking) Regulations 2017. So, the only real changes here are the updated “Last Updated” date and the modification to say “and EU”. Seems like a waste to Mr. Watchlist….
