Statement by Amnesty International on the implementation of Security Council Resolution 1373

In resolution 1373 the Security Council (the Council) has adopted wide-ranging measures to combat what are broadly described as terrorist acts. The Council has called on states to take steps to suppress the financing of such acts, to refrain from supporting them, to ensure that those participating in them are brought to justice, and to take special measures in respect of asylum seekers. The resolution was adopted under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, and is therefore binding on all UN member states.
