EU Council renews terrorist list

The EU Council has renewed the so-called EU terrorist list, which lists persons, groups and entities subject to restrictive measures with an aim to fight terrorism. No changes were made.

Those on the list - 13 people and 21 groups and entities - are subject to the freezing of their funds and other financial assets in the EU. EU operators are also not allowed to make funds and economic resources available to those listed.

The list is updated at regular intervals, at least every six months, based on any new developments.

The list was first set up in implementation of UN Security Council resolution 1373/2001, following 9/11.

This sanctions list is separate from the EU regime implementing UN Security Council resolutions 1267 (1999), 1989 (2011) and 2253 (2015) which target Al-Qaida and ISIL/Da'esh.
