National Counter Terrorism Awareness Week – Terrorist Financing
The theme for Thursday 27th November is “Terrorist Financing”.
Points to remember are:
- The fight against terrorism includes effective actions to impede the flow of funds that terrorist organisations depend upon to secure weapons and other materials.
- Terrorists raise money through money laundering, posing as charity fundraisers, placing false charity collection boxes in shops and a wide range of criminal activity.
- If you want to help people suffering in war-torn countries like Syria and Iraq, use registered charities to donate in the safest, fastest and most convenient way. Local councils and the Charity Commission can verify legitimate charities.
There are steps you can take to ensure your money goes to the right place. These are outlined in the following link:
