ASTANA, Aug. 23 (Xinhua) -- The Tajik National Bank will freeze the accounts of 1,178 terrorists and extremist organizations that are on a list provided by the National Security Committee, according to reports on Wednesday.
The list, which is constantly updated, has been expanded from the one six months ago, which listed only 200.
The organizations listed are officially banned in the Central Asian country by the Supreme Court. Among them are the Muslim Brotherhood, Jamaat-e-Islami, the Taliban Movement, the Islamic Renaissance Party of Tajikistan, Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Tablighi Jamaat, the Islamic State group and the Jabhat Al-Nusra.
Corresponding authorities are required to immediately and unconditionally freeze the bank accounts of all the people and organizations on the list. The move is partly intended to fight money laundering.
