March 16, 2018: SECO updates Sudan sanctions

Last Friday, Swiss authorities amended the following 3 individual Sudan sanctions listings:

SSID: 190-3078 Name: Alnsiem Musa Hilal Abdalla

DOB: a) 1 Jan 1964 b) 1959 POB: Kutum Low quality a.k.a.: a) Sheikh Musa Hilal b) Abd Allah c) Abdallah d) AlNasim e) Al Nasim f) AlNaseem g) Al Naseem h) AlNasseem i) Al Nasseem Address: a) Kabkabiya, Sudan b) Kutum, Sudan (resides in Kabkabiya and the city of Kutum, Northern Darfur and has resided in Khartoum) Nationality: Sudan Identification document: a) Diplomatic passport No. D014433, Sudan, Date of issue: 21 Feb 2013, Expiry date: 21 Feb 2015 b) Diplomatic passport No. D009889, Sudan, Date of issue: 17 Feb 2011, Expiry date: 17 Feb 2013 c) Other No. A0680623, Sudan (Certificate of nationality)

Justification: a) Formerly member of the National Assembly of Sudan from Al-Waha district b) Formerly special adviser to the Ministry of Federal Affairs c) Paramount Chief of the Mahamid Tribe in North Darfur d) Report from Human Rights Watch states they have a memo dated 13 Feb 2004 from a local government office in North Darfur ordering “security units in the locality” to “allow the activities of the mujahideen and the volunteers under the command of the Sheikh Musa Hilal to proceed in the areas of [North Darfur] and to secure their vital needs”. On 28 Sep 2005, 400 Arab militia attacked the villages of Aro Sharrow (including its IDP camp), Acho, and Gozmena in West Darfur. We also believe that Musa Hilal was present during the attack on Aro Sharrow IDP camp: his son had been killed during the SLA attack on Shareia, so he was now involved in a personal blood feud. There are reasonable grounds to believe that as the Paramount Chief he had direct responsibility for these actions and is responsible for violations of international humanitarian and human rights law and other atrocities Other information: Photo available for inclusion in the INTERPOL- UN Security Council Special NoticeNotice. Modifications: Amended on 19 Apr 2013, 6 Jun 2014, 17 Oct 2017, 17 Oct 2017, 14 Mar 2018

SSID: 190-3082 Name: Sharif Adam YacubShareif Adam

DOB: 1976 (approximately)1 Jan 1970 POB: El-Fasher Good quality a.k.a.: a) Adam Yacub Shant b) Adam Yacoub Nationality: Sudan Identification document: a) Passport No. P00182993, Sudan, Date of issue: 19 Jul 2010, Expiry date: 18 Jul 2015 b) ID card No. 103-0037-6235, Sudan (as mentioned in the passport) 

Justification: a) Sudanese Liberation Army (SLA) Commander. b) SLA soldiers under the command of Adam Yacub Shant violated the cease-fire agreement by attacking a Government of Sudan military contingent that was escorting a convoy of trucks near Abu Hamra, Northern Darfur on Jul 23, 2005, killing three soldiers. After the attack Government military weapons and ammunition were looted. The Panel of Experts has information establishing that the attack by SLA soldiers took place and was clearly organized; consequently it was well planned. It is therefore reasonable to assume, as the Panel concluded, that Shant, as the confirmed SLA Commander in the area, must have had knowledge of and approved or ordered the attack. He therefore bears direct responsibility for the attack and meets the criteria for being listed. Other information: a) Reportedly deceased on 7 Jun 2012. b) Photo available for inclusion in the INTERPOL-UN Security Council Special Notice. Modifications: Amended on 19 Apr 2013, 14 Mar 2018

Mayu openly attempts to thwart the AMIS mission through intimidation; for example he threatened to shoot down African Union (AU) helicopters in the Jebel Moon area in Nov 2005. Through such actions Mayu has clearly violated SCR 1591 in constituting a threat to stability in Darfur and meets the criteria to be designated by the Committee to be subjected to sanctions Other information: Photo available for inclusion in the INTERPOL-UN Security Council Special NoticeNotice. Modifications: Amended on 19 Apr 2013, 10 Oct 2013, 6 Jun 2014, 17 Oct 2017, 14 Mar 2018
