In accordance with paragraph 1 (b) of the Guidelines for the application of paragraphs 19 and 23 of resolution 1483 (2003), the Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 1518 (2003) concerning Iraq makes accessible a narrative summary of reasons for the listing for individuals and entities included in the sanctions list.
Technology And Development Group Limited was listed on 12 May 2006 in connection with the measures contained in paragraphs 19 and 23 (b) of resolution 1483 (2003), as “funds or other financial assets or economic resources that have been removed from Iraq, or acquired, by Saddam Hussein or other senior officials of the former Iraqi regime and their immediate family members, including entities owned or controlled, directly or indirectly, by them or by persons acting on their behalf or at their direction”
“TDG Ltd is a UK registered company incorporated in 1987, owned by Al-Arabi Trading Co., a company incorporated in Iraq. The most recent Annual Return held at the UK’s Companies House in relation to TDG Ltd. shows that the Al-Arabi Trading Company had a 99% shareholding in TDG in April 2002. Al-Arabi Trading Company was listed [see number 203 (IQe.203) above], on 26 April 2004, by the Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 1518 (2003) as an entity identified pursuant to paragraph 23(b) of resolution 1483 (2003).
T.M.G. Engineering Ltd. [an entity listed below under number 208 (IQe.208)] is a UK registered company almost wholly owned by TDG Ltd. It therefore appears that T.M.G. Engineering Ltd is effectively a subsidiary of Al-Arabi Trading Co. Through its subsidiary T.M.G. Engineering Ltd., TDG Ltd. had a large stake in the Matrix Churchill group of companies, known to have played a key role in Iraq's military industrialization procurement efforts in the 1980s. T.M.G. Shareholders Echosabre Ltd. and Admincheck Ltd. were part of the Matrix Churchill group.”
