EU Council to continue all autonomous counter-terrorism sanctions lists

Posted on: 30/01/2017

he EU Council has reviewed and decided to continue all of the listings under the EU’s autonomous counter-terrorism sanctions regime, which targets people and groups said to be involved in terrorism around the world, including Hamas, Hizballah, and FARC (the sanctions against FARC were suspended in September 2016).  These sanctions are a separate regime from the regime targeting ISIL & Al-Qaida, which since 20 September last year has also allowed the EU to impose its own listings, whereas previously it could only implement UN or individual Member State listings.

See Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/150 implementing Regulation 2580/2001 and repealing Implementing Regulation (EU) 2016/1127 and Decision 2017/154 updating Common Position 2001/931/CFSP and repealing Decision (CFSP) 2016/1136.  The EU’s notices to listed people and entities are here and here.  Listed people and entities may submit a request to the Council at any time that the decision to list them be reconsidered.  In order for their requests to be considered at the next review, they should be submitted by 24 March 2017.
