THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on European Union, and in particular Article 29 thereof,

Whereas:

On 28 February 2011, the Council adopted Decision 2011/137/CFSP (1).

(2)

With regard to the persons listed in Annex IV to Decision 2011/137/CFSP, in order to facilitate the return of misappropriated funds to the Libyan State, the derogations provided for in Decision 2011/137/CFSP should be amended to permit the release of certain frozen funds or economic resources where they are required to satisfy a judicial or administrative decision rendered in the Union, or a judicial decision enforceable in a Member State, prior to or after the date of designation of the persons, entities and bodies concerned.

(3)

The Council considers that there are no longer grounds for keeping one entity on the list set out in Annex IV to Decision 2011/137/CFSP.

(4)

The entry for one person should be removed from the lists set out in Annexes II and IV to Decision 2011/137/CFSP and should be included in the lists set out in Annexes I and III to that Decision.

(5)

The information relating to certain individuals listed in Annexes I, II, III and IV to Decision 2011/137/CFSP should be updated.

(a)

the funds or economic resources are subject of an arbitral decision rendered prior to the date on which the natural or legal person, entity or body referred to in paragraph 1(b) was listed in the Annex IV or of a judicial or administrative decision rendered in the Union, or a judicial decision enforceable in the Member State concerned, prior to or after that date;

(c)

the decision is not for the benefit of a natural or legal person, entity or body listed in Annexes II and IV; and

(d)
