I wasn't convinced  It never stated INFORCE and you don't see me posting Guru BS...

Seems to be awful close timing between dropping the sanctions after 15 years and finishing out the 90 days at 2%.  Mix in an Abadi/Sadr anti-corruption govt., turn up the heat and the RV soup could finally boil over.

The Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 1518 (2003) was established on 24 November 2003 as the successor body to the Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 661 (1990) concerning Iraq and Kuwait.

States implement the assets freeze and transfer measures in connection with individuals and entities included in the List of individuals established pursuant to resolution 1483 (2003) or the List of entities established pursuant to resolution 1483 (2003). These lists are maintained and regularly updated by the Committee.

To facilitate the work of the Committee and the Member States in implementing the assets freeze and transfer measures imposed by paragraph 23 of resolution 1483 (2003), the Committee has issued the following documents:

 Guidelines for the Application of Paragraphs 19 and 23 of Resolution 1483 (2003) describe how the lists of individuals and entities are assembled and disseminated.

 Non-Paper on the Implementation of Paragraph 23 of Resolution 1483 (2003) provides indicative, non-legally binding definitions of terms contained in paragraph 23 of the resolution.

 De-listing Guidelines describe how individuals and entities included on the lists can seek the removal of their names.

Work and mandate of the Committee 

The Committee comprises all 15 members of the Security Council and makes its decision by consensus. The current Chair of the Committee, for the period ending 31 December 2018, is Her Excellency Ms. Joanna Wronecka (Poland). The Vice-Chair for 2018 is Kazakhstan. The Committee prepares annual reports of its activities.

The Committee was established to continue to identify senior officials of the former Iraqi regime and their immediate family members, including entities owned or controlled by them or by persons acting on their behalf, who are subject to the measures imposed by paragraph 23 of resolution 1483 (2003). To that end, the Committee updates the lists of individuals and entities that have already been identified by the Committee established pursuant to resolution 661 (1990).

In resolution 1518 (2003), the Security Council also decided that the mandate of the Committee would be kept under review, and that the Council would consider authorizing the Committee to undertake the additional task of observing Member States’ fulfilment of their obligations in connection with the arms embargo on Iraq as reaffirmed in paragraph 10 of resolution 1483 (2003)

Could this be truly the last part of Chapter VII that we’ve been waiting on all along? It says specifically they are releasing the CBI of sanctions.....

 

Maybe they’ve been sovereign in every way when Abadi made his speeches except in this one area? Just my thoughts over the first cup of coffee this am

Man o man, the excitement hasnt stopped building up. CBI is the one entity that is responsible for the entire country both financially n economically...the CBI had been pegged to the US dollar ever since the sanctions because the dollar is the only entity that prevented the entire country from an economic collapse...now the CBI can unpeg from the dollar..we should see pretty soon all the banks using dinars only...and yes this calls out for an rv...the good ole glory days are coming to iraq once again
