Liechtenstein freezes terror-link bank accounts

Liechtenstein authorities freeze bank accounts and companies linked to ETA following a request from the Spanish judiciary

Bank accounts and offshore companies belonging to suspected ETA terrorists
have been blocked following a request by Spanish investigative judge Baltasar
Garzon.

Liechtenstein authorities have co-operated with his request for information
about the opening of accounts, their transactions, and amounts transferred from
Spain and France, according to Spain’s El Pais newspaper.

A bank in Vaduz that received the suspected ETA funds apparently tipped off
the Spanish authorities.

Liechtenstein generally ignores requests to investigate tax evasion, and is
on an OECD blacklist for its opaque practices and uncooperative attitude but it
will help countries tracking down money linked to terrorism.
