Abstract

The aim of this paper is to provide a critique of the United Kingdom’s (UK) counter-terrorist financing (CTF) measures since the introduction of the ‘Financial War on Terrorism’ in September 2001. The paper is divided into three sections. The first part of the paper provides a brief overview of the UKs CTF legislation that existed before the terrorist attacks in September 2001. The second part of the paper considers how the UK has implemented the ‘Financial War on Terrorism’ and in the final part, it critically reviews the effectiveness of these measures.
