Australia's autonomous sanctions: Libya
On 26 February 2011, the Minister for Foreign Affairs announced new sanctions measures against Libya to reflect Australia's grave concern at the deeply disturbing and unacceptable use by the Libyan regime of violence against its people.
As a consequence, Australian law currently prohibits:
1. The use or dealing with the assets of, and the making available of assets to, a person or entity designated by the Minister for Foreign Affairs other than as authorised by a permit issued by the Minister for Foreign Affairs.
- Autonomous Sanctions (Designated Persons and Entities and Declared Persons – Libya) List 2012
- DFAT Consolidated List
- Autonomous Sanctions Regulations 2011, regulations 6, 14 and 15
- Customs (Prohibited Exports) Regulations 1958, regulations 11A and 11B
2. The entry or transit through Australia of persons declared by the Minister as meeting the criteria for Libya under regulation 6 of the Autonomous Sanctions Regulations.
