The Terrorism and Other Crime (Financial Restrictions) Act 2014 implements the terrorist asset-freezing requirements of UN Security Council Resolution 1373 (2001) and Council Regulation (EU) No 2580/2001.

The Treasury has renewed the two final designations in respect of Euzkadi Ta Askatasuna with effect from 27 January 2017 and Hizballah Military Wing with effect from 30 January 2017.

This means that these entities are Designated Persons and remain subject to the financial sanctions imposed by the Act.

Part 4 of the Act allows a designated person to appeal to the High Court against any decision of the Treasury to make or vary, or not to make or vary, any interim or final designations and allows a designated person or anyone else affected by a decision of the Treasury to appeal to the High Court for a decision to be set aside.

Financial institutions and other persons are requested to check whether they maintain any accounts or otherwise hold funds or economic resources for, or provide financial services to, the designated person.  If so, they must freeze such accounts or other funds and, unless licensed by the Treasury, refrain from dealing with said funds or economic resources, and suspend the provision of any financial services.  They must also report their findings to the Sanctions Officer at the Customs and Excise Division of the Treasury.  Where a relevant institution has already reported details of accounts, other funds or economic resources held frozen for the designated person they are not required to report these details again.

Further details of the sanctions regime related to Terrorism and links to the Consolidated List of individuals and entities subject to other financial sanctions regimes may be found on the Customs and Excise pages of the Isle of Man Government website.
