The Office of the Attorney General in Port of Spain in a statement on Monday stated that the UN Security Council had established a committee referred to as ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee, which imposed sanctions against Crawford on August 18, the Trinidad Guardian reported.

Crawford, who also goes by the name Abu Sa’d a Trinidadi, appeared in an ISIS recruitment video last year where he called on Muslims in Trinidad and Tobago to commit acts of violence against “non-believers”.

Crawford, the release stated. was listed following a proposal submitted by the Trinidad and Tobago government.

The attorney general obtained an order from the High Court in Port of Spain on March 31 and declared Crawford a listed entity and ordered that his funds be frozen pursuant to the provisions of the Anti-Terrorism Act.

The attorney general confirmed that other applications under the Anti-Terrorism Act are currently before the courts, and that further listings and other actions are under consideration, the Guardian reported.
