Natwest Sued for Supporting Terror

Families in the US have won the first step in a legal battle to sue the NatWest bank for supporting terrorism. The case concerns Interpal, a charity supposedly raising money for Palestinian people but quite possibly using some of those funds to support the terrorist group Hamas.

Interpal is banned by the US as a "specially-designated global terrorist". NatWest argued that they were innocent because the UK Charity Commission had investigated Interpal and found them innocent of any wrongdoing.

It should be noted that the BBC produced a documentary into Interpal and the Charity Commission are now investigating again.
