UNSC Terrorism Listings: Review of Mostafa Mahamed’s listing pursuant to UNSC Resolution 1373 (2001)

Members of the public are invited to comment on a review of Australia's listing of Mostafa Mahamed pursuant to United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 1373 (2001).

UNSC Resolution 1373 (2001) imposes obligations on all UN Member States to prevent and suppress terrorism. Australia implements these obligations in Part 4 of the Charter of the United Nations Act 1945 and the Charter of the United Nations (Dealing with Assets) Regulations 2008. These laws make it a criminal offence to use or deal with the assets of listed persons or entities, or to make assets available to them.

The Minister for Foreign Affairs must list a person or entity if satisfied on reasonable grounds that the person or entity meets the criteria set out in paragraph 1(c) of UNSC Resolution 1373, that is, that the person or entity is:

  1. a person who commits, or attempts to commit, terrorist acts or participates in, or facilitates, the commission of terrorist acts;
  2. an entity owned or controlled directly or indirectly by such a person; or
  3. a person or entity acting on behalf of, or at the direction of, such a person or entity.

The listing of Mostafa Mahamed is due to expire on 20 August 2018. Members of the public are invited to provide submissions on whether Mostafa Mahamed's listing should be extended for a further three years by the Minister for Foreign Affairs.
