The Foreign Office spokesperson Aisha Farooqui categorically refutes reports of unfreezing the bank accounts of the UN designated individuals, saying that ‘targeted financial sanctions’ on the persons are still in place.
FO spokesperson Aisha Farooqui in a statement, said ‘factually incorrect and misleading” the report published in an English news paper last day that had claimed restoration of the bank accounts of the UN sanctioned persons.
The bank accounts belonging to the UN designated persons have not been unfrozen by Pakistan, FO spokesperson Aisha Farooqui said
The UNSC 1267 sanctions committee had granted basic expense exemptions to the designated individuals in 2019, in accordance with the exemption provisions of the relevant UNSC resolutions provided for in the relevant UNSC resolutions, Aisha Farooqui said
Aisha Farooqui further added that the exemptions were granted to allow these individuals to meet their basic expenses and do not involve any restoration or unfreezing of the bank accounts.
