to their financial sanctions on Libya. Additionally, the individuals were also added to their travel sanctions.

If I got this slightly wrong, my apologies – I speak neither Swiss German, Italian or French, which are the languages the sanctions are described in.

The travel sanctions list the same parties but with different SSID identification codes, FYI.
