Part 2 of the Terrorism Act 2000 (c.11) makes provision about proscribed organisations (including setting out offences in relation to such organisations in sections 11 to 13). An organisation is proscribed if it is listed in Schedule 2 to that Act or, in most cases, if it operates under the same name as an organisation so listed (section 3(1)). Article 2 of this Order adds “Global Islamic Media Front (including GIMF Bangla Team (Ansarullah Bangla Team) (Ansar-al Islam))”, “Mujahedeen Indonesia Timur (East Indonesia Mujahedeen)”, “Turkestan Islamic Party (East Turkestan Islamic Party) (East Turkestan Islamic Movement) (East Turkestan Jihadist Movement) (Hizb al-Islami al-Turkistani)” and “Jamaah Anshorut Daulah” to the list in that Schedule.

An impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sectors is foreseen.
