 Treasury Designates Senior Officials of the Government of Libya, Wife and Additional Children of Muammar Qadhafi


3/11/2011
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury took additional steps today to increase pressure on Muammar Qadhafi and the Government of Libya by designating nine individuals pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13566.  Those designated today include senior officials of the Government of Libya, as well as the wife and several of the children of Muammar Qadhafi.
 
President Obama signed E.O. 13566 on February 25, 2011, freezing the assets of the Qadhafi regime following its use of violence against civilians and human rights abuses in Libya and safeguarding the assets of the people of Libya from expropriation by Qadhafi. To date, the United States has frozen more than $32 billion in Government of Libya assets. As a result of today’s action, any assets of the designees subject to U.S. jurisdiction are frozen, and U.S. persons are prohibited from engaging in business with them.
 
“Today’s designation should send a strong signal to those responsible for the violence inflicted by Qadhafi and his government that the United States will continue steps to increase pressure and to hold them accountable,” said Acting Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David S. Cohen.
 
The senior officials designated today include Abu Bakr Yunis Jabir, the Libyan Minister of Defense; Matuq Mohammad Matuq, Secretary General of the People’s Committee for Public Works; Abu Zayd Umar Dorda, the Director of Libya’s External Security Organization; and Abdullah Al-Senussi, the Director of Military Intelligence.  Al-Senussi has also organized mass killings in Benghazi and recruited foreign mercenaries fighting in service of Qadhafi’s regime and is allegedly responsible for the deaths of 1,200 Islamists in Abu Selim prison.
 
Treasury also designated today Safia Farkash, Muammar Qadhafi’s wife, and several of Muammar Qadhafi’s children: Hannibal Qadhafi, head of the General Maritime Transport Company of Libya; Saadi Qadhafi, Commander of Special Forces and Head of the Libyan Football Federation; Muhammad Qadhafi, Chairman of the Libyan Olympic Committee and Chairman of the General Post and Telecommunications Company; and Saif Al-Arab Qadhafi.
