Max Hill QC.jpgMax Hill QC, the UK Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation, has published his first Annual Report on the operation of the Terrorism Acts in 2016 since succeeding David Anderson QC on 1 March 2017.

The report covers (inter alia) proscribed organisations – 5 organisations were proscribed in 2016, 1 was removed from the list following an application to deproscribe (see previous blogs on ISYF). There are a number of recommendations on stop and search, port and border controls, arrest and detention etc. The Report contains a chapter on proscription and financial sanctions by Professor Emeritus Clive Walker QC (Hon) (Annex 2 to the Report) commenting on the UK Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill.
