UK REMOVES LIBYAN ISLAMIC FIGHTING GROUP FROM LIST OF PROSCRIBED TERRORIST ORGANISATIONS

The Terrorism Act 2000 (Proscribed Organisations) (Amendment) (No. 2) Order 2019, from 1st November removed the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group from the list in Schedule 2 to the Terrorism Act 2000, so that the organisation is no longer proscribed.  The Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, aka Al-Jama’a al-Islamiyyah al-Muqatilah bi-Libya, was an armed Islamist group which was active during the Libyan civil war in 2011.
