On 26 October 2015, the Security Council Committee established pursuant to Security Council Resolutions 1267 (1999) and 1989 (2011), concerning Al-Qaeda and associated individuals and entities, removed one individual from the Al-Qaeda Sanctions List: Mohammed Ahmed Shawki Islambolly (“Mohammed Ahmed”).

The decision to remove Mohammed Ahmed from the list was taken after considering the delisting requests submitted through the Office of the Ombudsperson, established pursuant to Security Council Resolution 1904, and the Comprehensive Report of the Ombudsperson on the request. Subsequently, on 12 November 2015, the Security Council Committee removed two more individuals from the list: Mohamed Amine Akli (“Mohamed Amine”) and Chiheb Ben Mohamed Ben Moktar Al-Ayari (“Chiheb”).

The assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo set out in paragraph 1 of Security Council Resolution 2161 (2014) no longer apply to Mohammed Ahmed, Mohamed Amine and Chiheb.
