star this property answer text <p>The UK has a strong reputation for tackling terrorist financing and we are a key player in international efforts to strengthen the global response to terrorist financing. This was demonstrated in the UK’s Financial Action Task Force (FATF) Mutual Evaluation Report published in December 2018, which gave the UK the highest possible rating on how it tackles terrorist financing.</p><p><br>Our approach to countering terrorist finance is multifaceted and we have a range of disruptive tools and capabilities to detect, prevent and disrupt the movement of terrorist finance. We also work very closely with our international partners and financial institutions here in the UK, to exchange and analyse information to better detect, prevent and disrupt the movement of terrorist funds.</p><p><br>The investigation and prosecution of offences relating to proscribed organisations is a matter for the police and the Crown Prosecution Service.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The British Government has proscribed Hezbollah's military and security wings since 2008, and has long had a no contact policy with the entirety of the organisation. The Home Secretary was clear in his statement to the Commons that our support for Lebanon will remain unaffected by the decision to extend proscription. We remain committed to the security and economic stability of Lebanon and the region, and continue to work closely with our Lebanese partners towards these goals. The Minister for the Middle East and North Africa visited Lebanon last week where he underlined the UK's commitment to supporting Lebanon.</p> more like this
