EU: Travel Ban On Late Moammer Gaddafi’s Daughter Has Been Lifted

Image
The European Court of Justice (ECJ) on Tuesday ordered that a travel ban imposed on the daughter of former Libyan leader Moamer Gaddafi be lifted. The EU had imposed sanctions during the Libyan revolution in February 2011, banning Gaddafi and members of his family from entering or transiting through EU member states. However, the travel ban was renewed in June 2014. The ban was challenged by Gaddafi’s daughter Aisha, who currently lives in Oman with her family. The ECJ said that the European Council had justified the ban by citing the involvement of Gaddafi loyalists in the use of force, repression and violent attack against civilians. The court found that not enough information as to Aisha Gaddafi’s “individual, specific and concrete role,” was made available to support the ban.
