Security Council Committee pursuant to resolutions
1267 (1999) and 1989 (2011) concerning Al-Qaida
and associated individuals and entities


In accordance with paragraph 36 of resolution 2161 (2014) , the Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee makes accessible a narrative summary of reasons for the listing for individuals, groups, undertakings and entities included in the Al-Qaida Sanctions List.

I. Scope of information provided by the narrative summaries

The narrative summaries are based on information available to the designating State(s) and/or members of the Committee at the time of the listing, including the statement of case, coversheet or any other official information provided to the Committee, or any relevant information available publicly from official sources, or any other information provided by the designating State(s) or Committee members. 

Each narrative summary includes the date of listing, basis for listing according to relevant resolutions adopted by the Security Council as well as, as appropriate, any other relevant information available after the date of listing that would be provided when conducting the review of the same name(s) pursuant to paragraphs 65 - 67 of resolution 2161 (2014) and the names and reference number(s) of other entries on the List associated with the listed party. The information contained in each narrative summary is presented as much as possible in chronological order. The date on which the narrative summary is made accessible on the Committee’s website is also specified in the document containing the summary.

II. Composition of the Narrative Summaries
