SANCTIONS: OFAC DESIGNATES AUSTRALIA-BASED AL-QA’IDA FINANCIAL FACILITATOR AND IRAN-LINKED SHIPPING LINES

On 19 October, OFAC advised that it had designated the Australia-based al-Qa’ida-associated facilitator Ahmed Luqman Talib, and a company, Talib and Sons, for being owned, controlled, or directed by Ahmed Luqman Talib.  At the same time, 2 other Chinese individuals and 4 Hong Kong/China shipping lines and a holding company were also added to the Iran sanctions lists.
