Financial Sanctions: Afghanistan 4 February 2013

This news release is issued in respect of the restrictive measures directed against certain persons and entities associated with the Taliban.

The European Commission has amended Annex I to Council Regulation (EC) No. 753/2011 ("the 2011 Regulation") with effect from 1 February 2013.

Annex I to the 2011 Regulation lists the persons, groups and entities covered by the freezing of funds and economic resources under that Regulation.

The amendments reflect the decisions made on 28 December 2012 and 15 January 2013 by the United Nations Sanctions Committee established pursuant to resolution 1988 (2011) to remove three individuals from the UN list and to amend the identifying information of one existing entry.

The individuals removed from Annex I are no longer subject to the asset freeze imposed by the 2011 Regulation.

Financial institutions and other persons are requested to check whether they maintain any accounts or otherwise hold funds or economic resources for, or provide financial services to, the designated person. If so, they must freeze such accounts or other funds and, unless licensed by the Treasury, refrain from dealing with said funds or economic resources, and suspend the provision of any financial services. They must also report their findings to the Sanctions Officer at the Customs and Excise Division of the Treasury. Where a relevant institution has already reported details of accounts, other funds or economic resources held frozen for the designated person they are not required to report these details again.
