In order to safeguard NGOs from being misused for terrorist financing, the Security Bureau would like to draw NGOs' attention to the Gazette with an updated list of terrorists and terrorist associates published by the United Nations. NGOs are strongly encouraged to check the names of donors/beneficiary organisations against the name list when they deal with charities or fund raising activities so as to prevent money laundering or terrorist financing. For example, simply key in “Foundation” by using the “Find” function to search throughout the name list. Organisations named with “Foundation” will be highlighted.  Please note:  (1) Terrorists and terrorist associates may adopt very common or fake names to participate illegal activities, such as money laundering or terrorist financing etc. Please be alert in handling donations or transactions.  (2) Terrorists and terrorist associates are not only located or operated in the regions which are facing terror threats, but also in the regions that may have potential of terror threats or may not have any sign of terror threats.
