ANNEX

The entries concerning the persons listed below are replaced by the following entries:

‘2.   ALNSIEM, Musa Hilal Abdalla

Alias: a) Sheikh Musa Hilal; b) Abd Allah; c) Abdallah; d) AlNasim; e) Al Nasim; f) AlNaseem; g) Al Naseem; h) AlNasseem; i) Al Nasseem

Designation: a) formerly Member of the National Assembly of Sudan from Al-Waha district, b) formerly special adviser to the Ministry of Federal Affairs, c) Paramount Chief of the Mahamid Tribe in North Darfur

Date of birth: a) 1 Jan. 1964; b) 1959;

Place of birth: Kutum;

Address: a) Kabkabiya, Sudan; b) Kutum, Sudan (Resides in Kabkabiya and the city of Kutum, Northern Darfur and has resided in Khartoum).

Nationality: Sudan

Passport: a) Diplomatic Passport D014433, issued on 21 Feb. 2013 (Expired on 21 Feb. 2015);

b) Diplomatic Passport D009889, issued on 17 Feb. 2011 (Expired on 17 Feb. 2013)

National identification No: Certificate of Nationality A0680623.

Other information: Photo available for inclusion in the INTERPOL-UN Security Council Special Notice. INTERPOL-UN Security Council Special Notice web link: https://www.interpol.int/en/notice/search/un/5795065

Information from the narrative summary of reasons for listing provided by the Sanctions Committee:

Report from Human Rights Watch states they have a memo dated 13 February 2004 from a local government office in North Darfur ordering ‘security units in the locality’ to ‘allow the activities of the mujahedeen and the volunteers under the command of the Sheikh Musa Hilal to proceed in the areas of [North Darfur] and to secure their vital needs’. On 28 September 2005, 400 Arab militia attacked the villages of Aro Sharrow (including its IDP camp), Acho, and Gozmena in West Darfur. We also believe that Musa Hilal was present during the attack on Aro Sharrow IDP camp: his son had been killed during the SLA attack on Shareia, so he was now involved in a personal blood feud. There are reasonable grounds to believe that as the Paramount Chief he had direct responsibility for these actions and is responsible for violations of international humanitarian and human rights law and other atrocities.

3.   SHAREIF Adam

Alias: a) Adam Yacub Shant; b) Adam Yacoub

Designation: Sudanese Liberation Army (SLA) Commander.

Date of birth: 1 Jan. 1970

Place of birth: El-Fasher

Nationality: Sudan

Passport No: P00182993, issued on 19 Jul. 2010 (Expired on 18 Jul. 2015)

National identification No: 103-0037-6235 (as mentioned in the passport)

Date of UN designation: 25 April 2006.

Other information: Reportedly deceased on 7 June 2012. Photo available for inclusion in the INTERPOL-UN Security Council Special Notice. INTERPOL-UN Security Council Special Notice web link: https://www.interpol.int/en/notice/search/un/5283783

Information from the narrative summary of reasons for listing provided by the Sanctions Committee:

SLA soldiers under the command of Adam Yacub Shant violated the ceasefire agreement by attacking a Government of Sudan military contingent that was escorting a convoy of trucks near Abu Hamra, Northern Darfur on July 23, 2005, killing three soldiers. After the attack Government military weapons and ammunition were looted. The Panel of Experts has information establishing that the attack by SLA soldiers took place and was clearly organized; consequently it was well planned. It is therefore reasonable to assume, as the Panel concluded, that Shant, as the confirmed SLA Commander in the area, must have had knowledge of and approved/or ordered the attack. He therefore bears direct responsibility for the attack and meets the criteria for being listed.

4.   MAYU, Jibril Abdulkarim Ibrahim

Alias: a) General Gibril Abdul Kareem Barey; b) ‘Tek’; c) Gabril Abdul Kareem Badri

Designation: National Movement for Reform and Development (NMRD) Field Commander

Date of birth: 1 Jan. 1967

Place of birth: El-Fasher, North Darfur

Nationality: Sudanese by birth

Address: Tine, Sudan (Resides in Tine, on the Sudanese side of the border with Chad)

National Identification Number: a) 192-3238459- 9, b) Certificate of nationality acquired through birth 302581

Date of UN designation: 25 April 2006.

Other information: Photo available for inclusion in the INTERPOL-UN Security Council Special Notice. INTERPOL-UN Security Council Special Notice web link: https://www.interpol.int/en/notice/search/un/5795071

Information from the narrative summary of reasons for listing provided by the Sanctions Committee:

Mayu is responsible for the kidnapping of African Union Mission in Sudan (AMIS) personnel in Darfur during October 2005. Mayu openly attempts to thwart the AMIS mission through intimidation; for example he threatened to shoot down African Union (AU) helicopters in the Jebel Moon area in November 2005. Through such actions Mayu has clearly violated SCR 1591 in constituting a threat to stability in Darfur and meets the criteria to be designated by the Committee to be subjected to sanctions.’
