Tajik National Bank urges non-cooperation with suspected terror financiers

Staff Report

DUSHANBE -- The National Bank of Tajikistan has published a list of organisations and individuals accused of terror financing and is urging citizens to terminate any financial co-operation with those entities, Fergana News reported Wednesday (March 15).

The Tajik-language list contains more than 200 individuals accused of terror financing and 19 organisations considered terrorist or extremist, such as al-Qaeda, the "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant" (ISIL) and Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU).

The National Bank drew up the list in response to demands from the multi-national Financial Action Task Force, a source at the bank told Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty’s Tajik service. The bank hopes the compilation of the list leads to the freezing of assets of money launderers and terror financiers, said the source.
