On 28 October 2015, the CJEU rejected the applications of one entity and three individuals to annul their listing in the UN terrorist sanctions regime in Case T-134/11 Al-Bashir Mohamed Al-Faqih & Others v European Commission [2015]. The entity was the Sanabel Relief Agency Ltd and the three individuals were Al-Bashir Mohammed Al-Faqih, Ghunia Abdrabbah and Taher Nasuf.

The applicants submitted that the Commission had failed to comply with its duty set out in Kadi and Al Barakaat International Foundation v Council and Commission (C-402/05 P and C-415/05 P, ECR, EU:C:2008:461) to examine, carefully and impartially, whether the alleged reasons for listing were well founded. The CJEU dismissed the application, holding that the Commission had complied with its duties because, inter alia, the applicants had received summaries of the UN’s reasons for listing and the Commission had assessed both those reasons and the applicants’ responses.
