Financial Monitoring Service under the Central Bank of Azerbaijan (CBA) has added 14 persons to the list of legal and physical persons, who are subject to international sanctions for their support of terrorism, said the report of Financial Monitoring Service posted on its website Dec.14.

There is no data about the citizenship of the three last persons in the list.

Moreover, the Financial Monitoring Service has removed Rafik Mohamad Yousef, a citizen of Iraq, from the list.

This change was made in accordance with the updated international list of the Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council against "Al Qaeda" and the resolutions No.1267, 1989 and 2161.

The UN Security Council adopted Resolution 1267 (1999) on freezing the financial resources of the Al Qaeda organization and the Taliban movement and the establishment the Taliban/Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee.

The service also makes the approved list available for the monitoring and supervisory bodies. In the case of detection of properties and money belonging to legal entities and individuals specified on the list, these subjects of monitoring and supervisory bodies must inform the Financial Monitoring Service, without performing any operations with these properties and funds.
