Measures Against Terrorism

The Terrorist Asset-Freezing (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2011 ("the Terrorist Law 2011") came into force on 25 January 2012. All financial institutions and other bodies are requested to check their records to ensure they comply with it.

Following the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 1373 (2001).  It denounced terrorism and required members to deny all forms of financial support for those who participate in terrorist acts; to deny the provision of safe haven, support for terrorists; and to share with other governments information about any groups practicing or planning terrorist acts.

The Terrorist Law 2011 gives effect to Resolution 1373 (2001) in the Bailiwick by implementing certain prohibitions concerning the movement of assets, economic resources and financial services in respect of designated persons.
