Tunis / Tunisia – The National Commission for the Fight against Terrorism (CNLCT) has decided to extend, by six months, the freezing of assets and funds linked to terrorism of 43 people, according to a text published in the Official Journal on September 24.
The names of the 43 people affected by this freeze are published on the official website of the Commission with the charges against them and the date on which they committed or participated in terrorist operations. They are 42 Tunisians and one Italian citizen, the commission said.
This measure is taken in application of organic law n Â° 2019-9 amending and supplementing law n Â° 2015-26 relating to the fight against terrorism and money laundering, adds the committee.
On March 18, the CNLCT ordered the freezing of the assets of 3 people suspected of terrorist financing. The commission announced, in a press release, the freezing of the assets of some 40 individuals implicated in terrorism cases.
According to the President of the Commission, Mounir Ksiksi, 132 individuals and organizations are today liable to the same sanction.
The National Counterterrorism Commission is currently working on revising the national counterterrorism strategy. This new approach will be presented to the National Security Council in November.
