The Bank of England named and froze the assets of 19 of the 24 air terror suspects today.
Acting under the instruction of the chancellor, Gordon Brown, and on the advice of the police and security services, the bank froze the assets of 19 of those arrested yesterday in connection with an alleged plot to blow up passenger jets leaving UK airports for the US. It acted under powers granted by the United Nations to tackle the financing of terrorism in the wake of the September 11 2001 attacks.
Its action means it is a crime to make their money available without a licence from the Treasury.
The oldest of the named suspects is 35 and the youngest 17. Thirteen of them are from east London – nine from Walthamstow, one from Chingford, one from Leyton, one from the Limehouse and Poplar area and one from Clapton.
Four are from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, and the other two are from Birmingham and Stoke Newington, north London.
According to the Associated Press, a Treasury spokesman said today that the assets of more suspects could be frozen.
Meanwhile, a senior Pakistani government official said today that two British nationals arrested in Pakistan provided information about the alleged UK air terror plot. Ed Balls, economic secretary to the Treasury, said accounts held by the 19 named suspects with UK financial institutions were frozen until further notice. «The Treasury will review the need for further use of our asset-freezing powers as we receive further advice from the police and security services,» he said.
In a statement on its website, the Bank of England said it had directed that none of the frozen funds «should be made available, directly or indirectly to any person, except under the authority of a licence».
It added: «Financial institutions and other persons are requested to check whether they maintain any accounts or otherwise hold any funds, other financial assets, economic benefits and economic resources for the individuals named and, if so, they should freeze the accounts or other funds and report their findings to the Bank of England.»
Here are the names, released today by the Bank of England, of 19 of the 24 arrested airline terror suspects who have had their assets frozen on the orders of Chancellor Gordon Brown.
