Jersey regime

In accordance with UN Security Council Resolutions, most notably the UNSCRs 1267(1999) and subsequent Resolutions, the European Community adopted Council Regulation (EC) No 881/2002 of 27 May 2002 imposing certain specific restrictive measures directed against certain persons and entities associated with Usama bin Laden, the Al-Qaida network and the Taliban, and repealing Council Regulation (EC) No 467/2001 prohibiting the export of certain goods and services to Afghanistan, strengthening the flight ban and extending the freeze of funds and other financial resources in respect of the Taliban of Afghanistan (the EC Council Regulation).

Whereas the EC Council Regulation gives effect in the EU to the restrictive measures imposed by some UN Security Council Resolutions, the EU implemented UNSCR 2253 (2015) by adopting Council Regulation (EU) 2016/1686 of 20 September 2016 imposing additional restrictive measures directed against ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaida and natural and legal persons, entities or bodies associated with them ( the EU Council Regulation).

The EU Legislation (Sanctions – ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaida) (Jersey) Order 2016 (the Al-Qaida Order) (in force from 25 March 2016 and amended on 11 October 2016) gives effect to and applies the Da’esh and Al-Qaida Regulations.

Under Article 19(1)(c)(i) of the Sanctions and Asset-Freezing (Jersey) Law 2019, whenever the Annexes to the Da’esh and Al-Qaida Regulations are amended, those changes take effect immediately in Jersey without the need for any amendment in Jersey legislation. The Annexes provide the lists of persons subject to the restrictive measures.

Under the Sanctions and Asset-Freezing (General Provisions) (Jersey) Order 2019 (the GPO), all of the standard general provisions, contained in Articles 3 to 8 of the GPO, must be read as part of the Al-Qaida Order. As the Al-Qaida  is also a “prior EU sanctions Order”, the additional provisions in the Schedule to the GPO must be read as part of the Al-Qaida Order.

As stipulated in the Al-Qaida Order, any person who:

  • contravenes Article 2(1), 2(2), 3 or 4(1) of the EC Council Regulation;or
  • contravenes Article 2, 9, 11(1) or 13 of the EU Council Regulation;or
  • intentionally furnishes false information or a false explanation to any person (the Minister or any authorised person by the Minister) exercising powers under paragraph 1 of the Schedule to the General Provisions Order; or
  • with intent to evade furnishing information or producing documents in accordance with paragraph 1 of the Schedule to the General Provisions Order, destroys, mutilates, defaces, secretes or removes any document, or

any person who, without reasonable excuse:

  • fails to comply with a request for information (or for a document or an explanation), made by the Minister (or by a person authorised by the Minister) under paragraph 1 of the Schedule to the General Provisions Order; or
  • contravenes Article 4(2) or 5(1) of the EC Council Regulation; or
  • contravenes Article 8, 10(1) or 11(2) of the EU Council Regulation,

is guilty of an offence and liable on conviction to a term of imprisonment and a fine.

Important notes

The EU Legislation (Sanctions – ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaida) (Jersey) Order 2016 implements the Da’esh and Al-Qaida Regulations to the extent that it does not contradict the Al-Qa’ida and Taliban (United Nations Measures) (Channel Islands) Order 2002, which is an Order in Council (legislation made in the UK and extended to Jersey). It is hoped that the Order in Council will be repealed in due course, however it continues to remain in force for the time being.
