The Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001 obviously doesn't get invoked often – in the 3+ years Mr. Watchlist has been around, this is the first notice I've seen from Her Majesty's Treasury. Since I'm not the only one likely to be unaware of this, I will review and post some summaries (or the whole thing, depending on complexity and ease of summarization) of the Act in the near future.

But, the notice does say the following:

Under the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, HM Treasury may make afreezing order which prohibits persons from making funds available to or for the benefit of a person or persons specified in that order. This order may be made where theTreasury has a reasonable belief that persons specified in the order have taken or arelikely to take action which is to the detriment of the UK economy; or a threat to the lifeor property of one or more nationals or residents of the UK.
