The UN Security Council sanctions committee has removed Muammar Gaddafi's widow, Safia Farkash, from the travel ban list, while keeping her on asset freeze sanctions lists.

"On 31 January 2024, the Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 1970 (2011) concerning Libya decided that the following individual is no longer subject to the travel ban measure imposed pursuant to paragraph 15 of resolution 1970 (2011).  The individual continues to be subject to the asset freeze measure pursuant to the relevant resolutions." the committee's decision said, according to the UN website.

Farkash has been on the sanctions lists since June 2011, in accordance with paragraph 19 of Resolution 1973, as the wife of Muammar Gaddafi since 1970, and for her proximity to the former regime in Libya.
