EU lifts sanctions on former Libyan PM Al-Ghwell

The European Council lifted on Friday sanctions on the former Prime Minister, Khalifa Al-Ghwell, of the Salvation Government of the then General National Congress (GNC) of Libya.

The European Council said in a statement that Khalifa Al-Ghwell was on the list of individuals and entities subject to EU restrictive measures due to “their role in acts that threaten the peace, stability and security of Libya, or that obstruct or undermine the successful completion of its political transition.”

Al-Ghwell has been subject to EU restrictive measures, including a travel ban and an asset freeze, since 2016, and his current listing expires on April 02.

The Council said the EU continues to call on the international community and all relevant actors in Libya to comply with all UN Security Council Resolutions and in this regard, recalls its instrument of sanctions against possible spoilers.

Meanwhile, few days ago, the EU slapped sanctions on Mohammed and Abdelrahim Al-Kani and their (pro-Haftar Kaniyat Militia of Tarhuna) for Human Rights violations, as part of a wider sanction list of 11 individuals and four entities implicated in such violations.
