EU adds one to counter terror list
EU fight against terrorism: one person added to the ISIL/Da’esh and Al-Qaida list
The Council today decided to add one person to the EU sanctions regime against ISIL/Da’esh and Al-Qaida and persons, groups, undertakings and entities associated with them.
The sanctioned person, Mesut Sekerci, will now be subject to restrictive measures including a travel ban and an asset freeze. In addition, EU persons and entities are forbidden from making funds available to him.
With this new designation, six individuals are subject to restrictive measures under this EU regime.
The EU has been able to autonomously adopt restrictive measures against ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaeda, and persons, groups, undertakings and entities associated with them, since September 2016. The EU regime is independent from, but complementary to, the regime allowing for sanctions to be adopted at the UN level.
As it notes, this is an autonomous listing – not one from the UN.
And the person added (from the Official Journal):
Mesut SEKERCI; date of birth: 22 July 1995; place of birth: Evreux (France); nationality: French, Turkish
