E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: KTFN TU
SUBJECT: TERRORIST LISTS - TURKEY

REF: STATE 193615

1. (SBU) Turkey does not maintain a national list of banned
terrorist entities: there is no national designations system. The
Turkish authorities circulate all 1267-designated and
U.S.-designated names to government agencies, financial institutions
and to other legal entities with reporting requirements under
Turkey's anti-money-laundering and counterterrorism statutes.

2. (SBU) The list is not made public, however, nor does the
inclusion on the list necessarily mean the listed name is subject to
freezing or other sanctions. If assets are found in Turkey, and the
listed name is on the 1267 list, the assets can be frozen by a
Council of Ministers decree, although the authority of the Council
of Ministers to freeze is currently undergoing a legal challenge.
