How do you get on the Al Qaeda list and how do you get off

U.N Security Council Al Qaeda and Taliban Sanctions Committee Chairman Thomas Mayr-Harting

August 2, 2010

The head of the U.N. Security Council’s Sanctions Committee released his panel’s list of individuals with suspected ties to al-Qaeda and the Taliban. The list was created by the Security Council in 1999 after the U.S. Embassy bombings in East Africa. It subjects individuals to a travel ban, asset freeze and arms embargo.

Thomas Mayr-Harting, U.N Security Council Al Qaeda and Taliban Sanctions Committee Chairman, tries to answer a reporter’s question about how some people listed as Al Qaeda were removed and what the general procedures are for getting on and off the list.
