HM Treasury has renewed the final designation in respect of five individuals under the Terrorist Asset-Freezing etc. Act 2010. These individuals therefore remain Designated Person for the purposes of the Act and continue to be subject to the financial sanctions imposed by the Act.
Further details are available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/453221/General_Notice_of_Renewal_of_Final_Designation_TAFA_2010.pdf
Persons who are the subject of a designation under and within the meaning of the Act are also automatically Designated Persons for the purposes of the Terrorist Asset-Freezing (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2011 with immediate effect, and are subject to the asset freeze and other prohibitions in relation to Designated Persons in the Guernsey Law.
MEASURES WHICH SHOULD BE TAKEN
All businesses must check whether they maintain any accounts or otherwise have any kind of relationship with the persons referred to above or with any other Designated Person and treat any accounts, funds or economic resources belonging to, owned, held or controlled by a Designated Person as frozen with immediate effect if this is not already the case. Businesses must report any findings to the Policy Council immediately. Businesses must also refrain from making any funds or economic resources available directly or indirectly to or for the benefit of any Designated Person other than for the purposes of transactions that come within the exemptions under the Law or are the subject of a licence granted by the Policy Council.
Any information or queries should be sent to [email protected] with the subject line “Terrorist Financing”.
