On 26 October 2015, pursuant to Council Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/1920 and Council Implementing Decision (CFSP) 2015/1927, which implement respectively Council Regulation (EU) No. 1352/2014 and Council Decision 2014/932/CFSP, the EU has added to the listing of Ahmed Ali Abdullah Saleh his place of birth and details of the (now cancelled) diplomatic identity card issued to him by the United Arab Emirates.

The update brings Ahmed Ali Abdullah Saleh’s EU listing in line with his listing under the UN sanctions on Yemen, which was amended on 16 September 2015.

Ahmed Ali Abdullah Saleh was originally added to the EU sanctions list in June 2015 following his listing under UN sanctions in April 2015 (see Issue 39 of the Sanctions Alert).
