General Gibril Abdul Kareem Barey


Tek

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.
