Jordanian Foreign Ministry: EU-Sanctioned Med Wave Company is not Jordanian – Al Marsad

The official spokesperson of the Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Ambassador Deifallah Fayez asserted that the Med Wave Company, slapped by the sanctions of the European Union (EU) for violating the arms embargo imposed on Libya, is not Jordanian, not registered in Jordan, and has no presence on Jordanian territory.

(Libya, 23 September 2020) – Deifallah Fayez, in a statement quoted by the Jordanian newspaper Al-Ghad, yesterday, indicated that the concerned authorities have inspected the location alleged to be the headquarters of the said company in Amman according to the address contained in the relevant UN documents and found that this company does not exist there.

He added that the field inspection showed another limited liability company registered with the Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Supply used those offices, but Amman’s attorney general had frozen its assets due to unpaid income tax due to losses it incurred before it was closed in 2013.

“The company is owned by two persons, a Jordanian and an Arab national declared bankrupt due to financial claims against him in his country where his property was confiscated. He is also subject to financial claims and judicial rulings in Jordan. He is not currently residing in Jordan,” added the official spokesperson of the Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates.

Fayez indicated that all information refuting the claims of the company’s headquarters being in Amman and showing it is not registered in Jordan and does not operate in its territory will be served to the relevant international authorities.

He also confirmed that Jordan is fully committed to the decisions to ban the supply of arms to Libya and that it has provided full answers to all officially received inquiries posed by the relevant United Nations Committee on Sanctions on Libya.

Fayez indicated Jordan’s position in support of efforts to reach a political solution to the Libyan crisis through political dialogue between the Libyan parties in line with the approved references and in a manner that preserves the integrity of Libya and fulfils the aspirations of its people.
