US orders freeze of `terrorist' assets
Wednesday 25 January 1995
The moves, carried out under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, comes two days after Palestinian suicide bombers killed 19 people at Beit Lid in central Israel. It is aimed at "terrorist organisations that threaten to disrupt the (Middle Eastern) peace process," White House spokesman Mike McCurry said.
Mr McCurry named nine of the 12 groups, as Hamas, Hizbollah, Islamic Jihad, Abu Nidal, Black September, Fatah Revolutionary Council, the Islamic Group, the Palestine Liberation Front, and the extremist Jewish organization Kach. The order is intended to halt charity fund-aising by these groups, and deny them access to the US financial system. The FBI has long believed that funds raised in the US for "charitable" and humanitarian purposes in fact go to buy weapons. Similar charges have been levelled at Sinn Fein,whose leaders are granted US visas on condition they do not engage in fund-raising.
