UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL(UNSC) 1267 SANCTIONS LIST
United Nations Security Council Resolutions (UNSCR) 1267 and its successor resolutions require countries to immediately freeze funds, financial assets or economic resources of individuals and entities who are designated by the United Nations Security Council based on such person’s / entity’s connections with terrorism and terrorist financing. Further, countries should ensure that no funds, financial assets or economic resources are made available to or for the benefit of such designated persons or entities or their beneficiaries. Accordingly, financial institutions are obliged to have measures in place to identify and freeze funds, financial assets or economic resources of such designated persons and entities immediately. Freezing is effective as and when the United Nations Security Council announces the names of such designated persons and entities and such freezing shall be in force until such time the person or entity is delisted from the designated list. The Prevention of Terrorism Regulations mandates the Counter Financing of Terrorism Inter-Ministerial Committee with circulation of the UNSC 1267 sanctions list. The Committee has in turn mandated the Financial Reporting Centre to circulate the list to Supervisory Bodies as defined in POCAMLA Act, National Security Organs, Law Enforcement Agencies, and other relevant institutions.
