Security Council Committee Concerning Sudan Updates
Its Travel Ban and Assets Freeze List
On 4 September 2013, the Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 1591 (2005) concerning Sudan approved the updates, as underlined below, to one existing entry on its List of Individuals Subject to the Travel Ban and Assets Freeze.
DATE OF BIRTH/ PLACE OF BIRTH/ NATIONALITY/ RESIDENCE
PASSPORT/ IDENTIFYING INFORMATION/
Gabril Abdul Kareem
General Gibril Abdul Kareem Barey
Resides in Tine, on the Sudanese side of the border with Chad
National Movement for Reform and Development (NMRD) Field Commander.
Barey is responsible for the kidnapping of African Union Mission in Sudan (AMIS) personnel in Darfur during October 2005. Barey openly attempts to thwart the AMIS mission through intimidation; for example he threatened to shoot down African Union (AU) helicopters in the Jebel Moon area in November 2005. Through such actions Barey has clearly violated SCR 1591 in constituting a threat to stability in Darfur and meets the criteria to be designated by the Committee to be subjected to sanctions.
The updated List is accessible on the Committee’s website at the following URL: http://www.un.org/sc/committees/1591/pdf/Sudan_list.pdf.
