UK MAKES HAMAS A PROSCRIBED ORGANISATION UNDER THE TERRORISM ACT 2000

The Terrorism Act 2000 (Proscribed Organisations) (Amendment) (No 3) Order 2021 adds Harakat al Muqawama al-Islamiyya (Hamas) to the list of proscribed organisations under the Act.  It is a criminal offence for a person to belong to, or invite support for, a proscribed organisation. It is also a criminal offence to arrange a meeting to support a proscribed organisation; or to wear clothing or carry articles in public which rouse reasonable suspicion that an individual is a member or supporter of a proscribed organisation.
