On 1 December, the HM Treasury published a General Notice of Final Designation giving notice that Aseel Muthana is designated under the Terrorist Asset Freezing etc. Act 2010. The Notice replaces an earlier Notice issued on 4 July 2014, solely to certain institutions and individuals. Muthana’s designation was initially only publicised under a restricted basis as he was a minor at the time. Muthana is now 18 years of age and as a result his designation can now be fully publicised.
Muthana is now subject to financial sanctions imposed under the Act, including a freezing of assets.
