I. General Information
The Security Council Committee established pursuant to paragraph 30 of resolution 1988 (2011) (hereafter referred to as the Committee) oversees the implementation by States of the three sanctions measures (assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo) imposed by the Security Council on individuals and entities subject to the sanctions measures.
In order to harmonise the format of all United Nations Security Council Sanctions Lists, a newly modified version of the 1988 Sanctions List is available here. Narrative summaries with the new permanent reference numbers will be forth-coming.
II. Composition of the list
The 1988 Sanctions List consists of two sections, specified below:
- A. Individuals associated with the Taliban (134 individuals)
- B. Entities and other groups and undertakings associated with the Taliban (4 entities)
All names and identifying information on the 1988 Sanctions List have been submitted to the Committee by United Nations Member States and international organizations. Individuals are listed alphabetically by their family name/surname/last name as it appears in Latin script. Entities are also arranged in alphabetical order. All geographical locations are reproduced as submitted and are cited without prejudice to their political or legal status. Narrative summaries of reasons for listing, where available, can also be found on the Committee’s website. Members States are strongly encouraged, wherever possible, to submit to the Committee, through their Permanent Missions to the United Nations in New York, any relevant information not currently included on the 1988 Sanctions List.
The 1988 Sanctions List maintained on this website was last updated on 23 September 2014, and supersedes all previous versions. Further changes will be made to the 1988 Sanctions List immediately following the relevant decision of the Committee. A press release documenting such changes will also be issued and posted in the "Press releases" section. The List is available in the PDF, XML and HTML formats.
III. Names, Identifiers and acronyms on the list
The 1988 List has several fields for identifiers. Where information is lacking, the letters "na" (not available) denote that the Committee has not yet been able to obtain it. Explanations of the fields used in the 1988 List are provided below.
Permanent reference number
- The first letter (T) indicates that the individual/entity is inscribed on the 1988 Sanctions List.
- The second letter indicates whether it is an individual (I) or an entity (E).
- The third letter represents the first letter of the last name for individuals and the first letter of the name of an entity.
- The first number represents the order in which the individual/entity was added to the List.
- The second number represents the year the individual/entity was added to the List.
Name 1, Name 2, Name 3, Name 4
Four separate name fields have been provided in order to accommodate the full range of naming conventions used in all cultures. For example, for Arabic names, Name 1 is the individual's first name/given name, Name 2 is the name of the individual's father, Name 3 is the name of the individual's grandfather and Name 4 is the individual's family name/surname/last name (if known).
In many instances, individuals included in the 1988 List are represented by less than four names. There are several possible reasons for this, such as: a) information regarding some parts of the complete name is unavailable; or b) the naming convention used for that individual does not employ all four components. Users should bear in mind that there is no universal standard for transliterating names based in other scripts into Latin characters. This can result in a number of variations in spelling. Cross referencing names with other elements of the information contained in the List and searching for different possible spellings of the same name is therefore recommended.
