KUWAIT CITY, Feb 1: Ambassador Hamad Al- Mashaan said Security Council Ombudsman Richard Malanjum (Ombudsperson for the UN Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee) recently met with three Kuwaitis and two Bedouns on the list of persons wanted by law internationally, reports Al-Rai daily. During the meeting, Malanjum discussed the reasons behind the Security Council’s decision to impose sanctions on these individuals.
In his report, Malanjum recommended lifting the sanctions on the two Bedouns; but not for the three Kuwaitis. According to Al-Mashaan, Malanjum met the accused individually; indicating the Security Council will hold a session in March to deliberate on this case and determine the reasons for not lifting the sanctions on the three Kuwaitis.
He affirmed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, headed by the minister and his deputy, is working hard to push for lifting the sanctions on the three Kuwaitis. Al-Mashaan currently heads the Committee for the Rehabilitation of Individuals on the Security Council’s Counter-Terrorism Lists, which subjected these five persons to an intensive rehabilitation program for a full year to support their request to remove their names from the international sanctions lists.
