“We wholeheartedly condemn the illegal actions of the activist group, Anonymous, and its claims of breaching the privacy of hardworking, responsible individuals.
“The claims from Anonymous that connections exist between our business and known terrorist organisations are quite simply wrong. Dahabshiil categorically denies these suggestions. We have never been the subject of any investigation in relation to alleged terrorist funding and we have no involvement whatsoever with money laundering or the funding of terrorist organisations.
“Consequently, we call on Anonymous to withdraw its untrue allegations immediately.
“Dahabshiil places the highest importance on its compliance procedures and has extensive anti-money laundering and anti-terrorist financing policies in place which are approved by the relevant regulators, including the FSA in the UK. All staff receive extensive and continuous training in this regard.
“We have started a thorough investigation of Anonymous’ attack and will keep all customers fully updated. Safeguarding our customers’ funds is of paramount importance to Dahabshiil. We will continue to work closely with the relevant authorities as we proceed.”
– ENDS –
