Friday, March 08, 2013

The UAE Central Bank issued orders to banks and financial institutions on Thursday afternoon to delist one Somali and 17 entities from the Al Qaida Sanction List.

The order was given after concluding its consideration of a request submitted through the Ombudsperson established pursuant to Security Council Resolution NO 1904 of 2009 and after considering the comprehensive report of the Ombudsperson, the Central Bank said in a statement.

“Therefore, the assets freeze, travel ban, and arms embargo set out in the Security Council Resolution 1904 of 2009 no longer applies to the names in the list,” the Central Bank clarified.

The Central Bank added that Ali Ahmad Nur Jim’ale remains subject to a travel ban, asset freeze and targeted arms embargo imposed by the Security Council Resolution No. 1844 of 2009, concerning Somalia adopted under the UN Charter.
