The UK has de-listed former Libyan Prime Minister Baghdadi Al-Mahmoudi, who served under the regime of Muammar Gaddafi, according to a financial notice released by the UK government on Friday.
Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation of UK Treasury stated in its notice that Baghdadi Al-Mahmoudi “has been removed from the consolidated list and is no longer subject to an asset freeze.”
Al-Mahmoudi was originally sanctioned by the the European Union in March 2011 for his position in Gaddafi’s regime and alleged role in the repression of demonstrators, as per the Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 272/2011.
He was re-listed under the EU’s single Libya sanctions regulation in January 2016 and his designation was carried over to the UK sanctions regime after Brexit.
Al-Mahmoudi was de-listed by the EU and Switzerland in November 2021.
