ABU DHABI, 8th June, 2017 (WAM)--The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Arab Republic of Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, and the Kingdom of Bahrain as part of their unified ongoing commitment to combatting terrorism today acted to update their respective lists of designated terrorist organisations and individuals. As a result fifty-nine (59) individuals and twelve (12) entities were designated by each of the four countries.
To address the long-term and continuing threat of terrorist financing emanating from Qatar, and associated material support for terrorist organisations, included in these designations are thirty-seven (37) individuals and six (6) entities that have specifically financed, aided and/or provided material support to al-Qaida and its associated organisations and networks.
Among the sanctioned parties are charities and fundraisers in Qatar that have acted for the benefit of al-Qaida for more than a decade.
The designations point to the fact that despite repeated calls from the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and the international community, Qatar remains a permissive jurisdiction for terrorism financing.
The designations are a direct response to the Government of Qatar’s consistent refusal to take meaningful steps to disrupt the activities of terrorist support networks operating within its borders. In fact several of the entities and individuals identified are explicitly affiliated to the Government of Qatar.
The details of these Al Qaida specific designations are as follows:
