(May 02, 2008) Orders made to implement United Nations Security Council regulations designed to prevent the financing of terrorism by freezing terrorist assets have been quashed by the High Court of the United Kingdom. The Terrorism (United Nations Measures) Order 2006 and the al-Qaeda and Taliban (United Nations Measures) Order 2006, both made under the United Nations Act 1946, were ruled unlawful by the courts, but the government has been given leave to appeal, effectively delaying the quashing of the Orders until the appeal has been heard. (A and others v HM Treasury [2008] EWHC 869 (Admin); The Al-Qaida and Taliban (United Nations Measures) Order 2006, SI 2006/2952, available at http://www.opsi.gov.uk/SI/si2006/20062952.htm#1 (official source); and The Terrorism (United Nations Measures) Order 2006 SI 2006/2657, available at http://www.opsi.gov.uk/SI/si2006/20062657.htm (official source).)
