Security Council Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee Action Regarding


Jaber Abdallah Jaber Ahmad Al-Jalahmah


On 3 January 2014, the Security Council Committee pursuant to resolutions 1267 (1999) and 1989 (2011) concerning Al-Qaida and associated individuals and entities decided that Jaber Abdallah Jaber Ahmad Al-Jalahmah (QI.A.237.08) should be included on the Al-Qaida Sanctions List.

Jaber Abdallah Jaber Ahmad Al-Jalahmah was originally included on the Al-Qaida Sanctions List on 16 January 2008, but had petitioned the Committee, through the Office of the Ombudsperson established pursuant to Security Council resolution 1904 (2009), for removal from the List.  Following the presentation to the Committee by the Ombudsperson of her Comprehensive Report on this petition, the Committee received new information concerning recent support by Jaber Abdallah Jaber Ahmad Al-Jalahmah to Al-Qaida-related entities.  This information was not available to the Ombudsperson at the time she delivered her report to the Committee and was not considered by the Committee when making its decision on the petition.  Consequently, the Committee simultaneously approved the petition for removal from the List based on the Ombudsperson’s report, and decided to re-list Jaber Abdallah Jaber Ahmad Al-Jalahmah based on the new information.

The Committee therefore approved the addition of the entry specified below to its Al-Qaida Sanctions List of individuals and entities subject to the assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo set out in paragraph 1 of Security Council resolution 2083 (2012) adopted under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations:
