                                  Al-Qaida and Taliban

This notification is issued in respect of the financial measures taken against Al-Qaida and the
Taliban.

Council Regulation (EC) No 881/2002 of 27 May 2002 imposed, amongst other matters, a freeze
on the funds and economic resources of persons associated with Usama bin Laden, the Al-Qaida
network and the Taliban as listed by the United Nations Al-Qaida and Taliban Sanctions
Committee established pursuant to UN Security Council Resolution 1267 (1999). The persons
covered by the freezing of funds and economic resources are listed in Annex I to Regulation
881/2002 (as amended).

With the publication of Commission Regulation (EU) No 417/2010 of 12 May 2010 in the Official
Journal of the European Union (O.J. L119, 13.5.2010, p.14) on 13 May 2010, the European
Commission has amended Annex I to Regulation 881/2002, with effect from 14 May 2010, to
reflect the decision made by the UN Sanctions Committee on 19 April 2010 to remove three
individuals from the UN Consolidated List maintained under Resolution 1390 (2002).

The individuals removed from Annex I are therefore no longer subject to the asset freeze
imposed by Regulation 881/2002.

However, the three individuals continue to be subject to Directions issued by the Treasury on
5 September 2003 under article 4(1) of the Terrorism (United Nations Measures) Order 2001
(“the 2001 Order”). Therefore the funds and economic resources of the three individuals named
in the Annex remain frozen.

The three individuals are set out in the Annex to this notification.

The Consolidated List of Financial Sanctions Targets which is maintained on the Treasury website
has been updated to reflect that the individuals no longer fall under Regulation (EC) No
881/2002 (i.e. under the ‘Al-Qaida and Taliban’ regime) but remain subject to the 2001 Order
(i.e. under the ‘Terrorist Financing’ regime).        The Direction issued by the Treasury on
5 September 2003 under the 2001 Order for one of the individuals has been amended to align
with identifiers previously included under the Regulation (EC) No 881/21002 listing.
