Chapter Summary

The International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism was adopted in New York on 9 December 1999, just one year after France had informally submitted the first proposal, and following four weeks of negotiations that began in March 1999 and were completed in September 1999. Article 2, paragraph 1, of the Terrorist Financing Convention which defines the principal act, consists of three elements, namely the chapeau and subparagraphs. Although the International Convention on the Suppression of Terrorist Financing was concluded in a fairly short time-frame the negotiations involved difficult issues. The advantages of the new criminalisation in addressing complex networks of international terrorism with sophisticated funding systems are evident. Mirrored against the intention of the drafters and the object and purpose of the Convention, the elements of the crime of terrorist financing seem to consist of material support given to or collected for terrorist causes.
