Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government following the ruling of the European Court of First Instance on 4 December 2008 ordering the European Union to remove the People's Mujaheddin Organisation of Iran from its asset freeze list, whether they will vote against the group's continued inclusion on the European Union list when the Council of Ministers next meets. [HL713]

Following the judgment of the Court of First Instance of 4 December 2008, the Council considered each entry on the existing list and on 26 January 2009 adopted by unanimity decision 2009/62/EC, which amended the list of persons, groups and entities subject to restrictive measures (and repealed decision 2008/583/EC). The People's Mujaheddin Organisation of Iran is no longer included on the list of persons and entities subject to an asset freeze in the European Community.
